Differences between Preprocessor ($) and Document Property in custom expression

End user can insert a document property into an expression using the Insert Property option in the calculated column expression. This would add a preprocessor($) expression like ${documentproperty}

When renaming a column name, the expression using PreProcessor does not automatically update.

Differences like these should be documented allowing the user to determine which option to use
