Description: $$Variables - repeating - don't display as merge fields

How to replicate: see attachment

Workaround: none that makes sense

 

 

If you set $$Var[5] = "Hello" in a script, having it on a layout as merge var <<$$Var[5]>> does not compute - nothing is displayed.

 

OTOH, a repeating variable IS evaluated and displayed, for example <<test::var[3]>>.
