Once I have gone through each and every page and clicked highlight followed by remove highlight, the text returns to normal, except, as soon as I compile the project into any format at all, it compiles with the damn black blocks. I save the project, close it, re open it, the black blocks are back.
Someone please help me, im going insane.
P.S, please note - the image is just an example of a notes project - normally I have folder and sub folders, and each of these are converted into the evil black blocks of doom.
I guess try to contact support at their email. I’ve never experience this problem before, and I don’t have any suggestions or hypotheses as to why it’s happening. Thus my reluctance to add a post, but nothing of substance to the conversation.
As krastev mentioned, there have been older posts by folks with a similar issue. You can find them by doing a google search like this:

The only time I experienced anything similar was with Windows Scriv a few releases ago, where syncing with the iOS version would result in pages appearing blank, due to the font being changed to white/no color. Sort of the reverse of what you’re experiencing. That was fixed around 1.9.8, I think.
Does it happen with new projects?
Only some projects or every project?
Do you have older project backups that you can open, to see if it impacts them now?
I’ve already trawled google and forums, even people with similar issues seemed to get no response, and the ones that did - the fix didn’t work.
It’s every project, all backups are the same too.
Its got to the stage where i’ve totally ditched scrivener and am now searching for a new writing software. This all seemed to happen after a copy and paste from google drive… I have no idea if that’s relevant.
