I am unable to reference a numerically named layout using the value of a global number variable.
Attach a Capx
(dunno how to invoke a download automatically, you can download from an icon at the top of the page)
Description of Capx
There is a "main" layout which should be the layout you run, it has a button which takes you to a "UI" layout that has a globalised text object for demonstration purposes, The "main" layout has an event sheet, and "UI" has a separate event sheet. There is also a layout called "1", which has a green square on it so you know when the layout is open due to it's presence.
Steps to Reproduce Bug
Run layout from "Main"
Starting the Main layout and clicking the button takes you to UI layout, then nothing happens. Text is present as expected but process stops there. Debug mode shows that the global value WAS incremented to expected value. (1)
Starting the Main layout and clicking the button takes you to the UI layout, showing the text object, the global variable "CurrentLevel" is incremented from 0 to 1, then the level 1 layout should load, showing the green square alongside the text brought over from the UI layout.

I theorise that this is due to the global number variable being just that, a number, rather than a string, which the name of the layout is, the difference in datatypes is making C2 frown upon my event sheet, despite visibly the number and the string look the same, they are, on a computer-y level, different things.
