Help for the Split files filter indicates that the split filenames can make use of @macro
You can insert macros by preceding their name with @
Is it also feasible to make use of a captured variable in the split filename specifier?

Best regards,

Captured variables and macros share the same namespace, so yes.

Capture text to a variable often requires the use of Restrict to each line in turn.

Would this cause any problems for the Split files filter?

Quite possibly if you are relying on splitting after xx lines, but if you can split on a pattern you can work around this.
