Compile in Scrivener adds double indents for each new paragraph


I am having trouble when I compile manuscript in Scrivener to a .doc file. The first line of every paragraph indents twice in the MS document. How do I correct this compiles correctly into MS document?

Any assistance is much appreciated.

I would guess that you’ve put a tab at the beginning of every paragraph, so you should simply remove them. Go into “Scrivenings” mode and in Edit → Text Tidying there is a command to remove all leading tabs.

I’m not at my computer at the moment, so I can’t give you more guidance than that



Hi Mark,

Yes, I did. It appears you know scrivener inside out. I tried it, and it worked perfectly. Thank you for your help, much appreciated!!!


Happy to be of help.
