I have a document with about 350 pages. I numbered the pages fine. I finished working and closed InDesign. In CC InDesign made some updates. Now when I insert "current page number", InDesign types in the letters "SS" which are not appropriate for my A Master. What's going on?

I use text vraiables (form paragraph style) in a document and they worked correctly.

I  think thay I have an update (I have the release 15.1 x64 actually) and text variables does not work. The text "ss" is displayed in palce of the real value of the paragraph.

I have a big mistake with text variables. When I create a new document with text varuable, thst works correctly.

When I open an existing dociment then text variables does not work ! It display "ss" when I insert the variable in place of the variable name.

Hi,

Those who are facing the issue, can you confirm if the composer you are using is World ready composer?

To check the same:

  • Select the text range that has the text variable
  • Go to paragraph panel
  • In the panel menu check for the composer

If I choose World ready composer the bug appears. If I choose an other composer, it's OK.

 

The solution is to change the composer.

 

Thank you.

Hi Gérard,

thank you for reporting this. Just tested with all six available paragraph composers.

I can confirm the bug. With documents created in CC 2019 and opened with 15.1.0.25 as well with documents created with 15.1.0.25.

 

Here a sample from my German InDesign CC 2019. You see page 156 with a table where I used the Current Page Name variable in column 1 formatted with all available paragraph composers. One composer per table row.

Column 2: Special strings for scripting

Column 3: German composer names

Column 4: English composer names

Opened with InDesign 2020 version 15.1..0.25:

I just upgraded to 15.1 and produced a test document and included page numbers via the Master pages without any issue.

Maybe you should reset your InDesign Preferences.

Bonjour,

Suite à la mise à jour de InDesign CC 2020 - version 15.1.x64...

Je rencontre un problème avec les notes de bas de page ainsi que pour les numérotation de page !

Tout est bien configuré pour numéroter les notes mais au lieu d'un chiffre, c'est "ss" qui s'affiche en référence dans le texte et dans la note de bas de page.
Idem pour les folios de pages.
J'ai tenté de reprendre toutes les options, sans succès.
Toutes mes anciennes notes et anciennes numérotaions ont été remplacées par "ss" !!!

Auriez-vous une piste ?

En vous remerciant,

Bonne journée
=============================
Hello,

Following the update of InDesign CC 2020 - version 15.1.x64 ...

I am having a problem with the footnotes as well as with the page numbering!

Everything is well configured to number the notes but instead of a number, it is "ss" which is displayed as a reference in the text and in the footnote.
Ditto for page folios.
I tried to take back all the options, without success.
All my old notes and numbering have been replaced by "ss" !!!

Do you have a lead?

Thanking you,

Have a good day

Merci beaucoup pour cette réponse...

Effectivement, cela solutionne le problème !

Il faut choisir "Compositeur ligne simple Adobe" dans les options de"Paragraphe" et le problème est résolu.
Lorsqu'ill s'agit d'un "style de Paragraphe", il faut faire cette modification à la rubrique "Justification". !!!
Encore merci et bonne journée

L'option « compositeur de paragraphe » fonctionne aussi. Ce qui ne fonctionne pas, c'est l'option « universel ».

Bonjour, il ya plusieurs messages à ce sujet. Pour éviter le problème – et en attendant qu'Adobe trouve la solution – il ne faut pas utiliser le compositeur universel (dans les options de justification)Capture d’écran 2020-06-16 à 16.21.34.jpg

Hi ElishevaH,

this is a known bug with InDesign 15.1.0.25.

All text variables, also Current Page Number, show "ss" in every instance.

Caused by the following paragraph composers:

 

Adobe World-Ready Single-line Composer
Adobe World-Ready Composer

 

Currently the only known workaround is to use one of the following paragraph composers:

 

Adobe Single-line Composer
Adobe Paragraph Composer
Adobe Japanese Single-line Composer
Adobe Japanese Paragraph Compose

 

If you do text composition with Hebrew or Arabic then this is no option at all.

In that case revert back to InDesign 15.0.3 until the issue is fixed.

 

Vote for fixing the bug here:

ID 2020 15.1 - All text variables (including page numbers) replaced by "ss" text
