ID 2020 15.1 - All text variables (including page numbers) replaced by "ss" text
Just updated to ID 2020 15.1 and found a bug which makes the program unusable forcing me to immediately downgrade.
When I open on of my ID documents created in previous version of ID, all of my defined text variables as well as page numbers are corrupted and replaced by the "ss" text. Changing the style has no effect. I can create page number based on the 'Basic Paragraph' style but when i choose any other previously created style, the number changes to 'ss'.
Even the variable field preview shows 'ss' text instead of variable name.
The same document opens in ID 2020 15.0.3 without any problems.
The fix is now publicly available in the latest InDesign update, 15.1.1
Please update to this latest version to get the fix.

I have the same problem - total unusable!!!!!
it's very simple to reproduce the above errors. All page numbers changed to "SS".. Do you still need a sample.. One should not ask like this..
Better to use older version.. Adobe should not update any product like this kind of "bug". Although seems minor, whereas its a major bug, one cannot use without page numbers and other various just by changing to composer.
