On layout: <<$$var>>     shows 3

and then...
On layout: <<$$var[1]>>     shows nothing
On layout: <<$$var[2]>>     shows nothing

Expected result

On layout: <<$$var[1]>>     3
On layout: <<$$var[2]>>     5

Workaround

Orignial:
set variable: $$var[1] = 3
set variable: $$var[2] = 5

I have to put it into another variable:
set variable: $$var1 = $$var[1]
set variable: $$var2 = $$var[2]

The repeated variables i shown on the screen
On layout: <<$$var[1]>>     shows nothing
On layout: <<$$var[2]>>     shows nothing

The new variables i shown on the screen
On layout: <<$$var1>>     3
On layout: <<$$var2>>     5
