CDS view can't be used in calculation and analytic view

Dear HANA experts,

I'm Franklyn from the cloud service center. Currently I'm involving in the development for a customer project. For this project, we use HANA CDS to model the entities, associations. We also create CDS views for all read-only data access.  But later we find that CDS views can't be used in calculation view and analytic view. What we have done is:

1. Create a calculation view CV_LFTEST and add a join node.

2. Try to add the CDS view to the join node of the new calculation view and click OK (refer to screenshot).

3. Nothing is added after clicking the OK button.

It seems that CDS view can't be used in analytic view or calculation view. Since in our project, we have such requirement. We need to double confirm with the HANA expert if this is a limitation. If it is not a limitation, how can we use it in calculation view?
