Expression Bug - CC2020 - Expression works in AE2020 but not PPro 2020

The following Expression used to work in AE CC2019 and PPro 2019. They now work in AE CC 2020 BUTT not in PPro 2020.

This Expression is applied to a Source Text prop which has some text in it (default custom text) - more on this later.

 

The issue is with the last array item, text.sourceText. It's there as a feature to allow a user to input custom text, as opposed to choosing from a list, from the same array. In AE CC 2020. all is good. In PPro 2020, the default text doesn't appear - the text entry box is blank and anything I type disappears into an unknown world when I click on the Timeline.

 

PPro 2020 doesn't accept the default text (since it doesn't display it) but yet provides for a text entry box.

 

In CC2019, I was using the ole Slider EXP Control for selections but converted them to Drop Menu EXP Controls for CC 2020.

 

My thoughts are either this is a bug with the Drop Down Menu and the way it handles sourceText or I just need to add thingies to my text.sourceText Expression method. Anyone with an idea for a solution?

 

 

---------------------------------
myArray = ["ROTTING BANANAS","FLIGHT CLUB",text.sourceText];

selects = thisComp.layer("Controller").effect("Program Title")(1);

myArray[selects-1]
