Compile not preserving Styles

Hello, hope someone can help me! Every time I compile, none of the styles I’ve applied to specific chunks of text work, it just all gets compiled in one font.

I feel like I’ve looked through every compile setting and can’t see what I’m doing wrong! Any help would be appreciated!

I’m using Scrivener 3.

Check out chapters 23 and 24 in the manual, especially section 24.5 about Compile Styles. In essence, the styles that you have defined in the editor mainly affect the editor – and the compiler can override them. If you have specific styles that you want to see different that your compile global settings, you need to set up the corresponding compile styles.

Yup, I created the corresponding Styles in compile as I thought that was my mistake. But nope, still nothing… It preserves them if I use just the plain “default” option but not the Manuscript option despite creating the corresponding styles…

First, make sure the names for your compile styles exactly match the corresponding project styles.

Next, make sure that your compile styles are the correct type – paragraph, character, or paragraph + character – for the types of settings they are changing.

See if you character and paragraph + character compile styles have the “Include font family” checkbox selected, and try the opposite setting to see if it does what you want.

@kinruska, what format are you compiling to?

I’m having this problem too. I’m writing “text” messages with emojis, and even though I have defined a character-level style to use “noto-emoji” (which is a black and white version) it still defaults to the color-emojis in compile (for pdf, word, etc.) When I look at the compile “styles” and try to import my “emoji” character style, it changes the font to Helvetica and won’t let me use noto-emoji. Grr. Frustration.
