Sorry, my first description was probably not enough.
"not updated" means, that the text field is not changed, when going through the pages of an atlas.

So with opacity 100% everything is ok - text field is correctly updated according to the actual atlas page.
With other value for opacity this does not work anymore.

Do you see this in outputs too, or only in the designer?

Oh yeah, you are right. The output (PDF) is ok! I didn't export it yesterday, so I didn't realize that.

Makes this bug quite a bit less important. But it cost me a lot of time, to find out, what was going wrong, because for a long time I thought, that the problem was me doing somethng wrong.
