"this" and "that" are not recognized as subjects sometimes when they are

Dear CHIBOLTS:

I found that when "that" functions as the subject, it is always tagged as a 
LINK except in "that's". In the non-contracted form "that is", "that" is 
not recognized as a subject either. I'm attaching three pictures of "that" 
here. One with "that's" in it ("that" tagged as subject correctly) and one 
with "that is" ("that" fails to be tagged as subject) and one with "that" 
followed by a verb where "that" tagged as a LINK. 

In "that will", "that" is recognized as subject successfully, but in 
"that'll", "that" is tagged as LINK. I'm attaching two pictures to show 
this. 

As for "this", GRASP tier recognizes it as subject when it is followed by 
"is" or "will", but when it is followed by other verbs, it is merely tagged 
as a Determiner, not a subject. I'm attaching three pictures of "this" 
followed by "is", "will" and another verb respectively. 

Thank you!

Best,
Cindy
