Essay Block Quote (Preserved) Couldn't Be Edited

Was playing around with the presets in the editor. Found out that Essay Block Quote (Preserved) couldn’t be edited. For instance, If I would like some text that I formatted with Essay Block Quote (Preserved) to revert to some other preset format like normal text (Body), the dotted lines surrounding the text is not removed. The same goes for the highlight color of the Essay Block Quote (Preserved) text. This also happens even if I delete the text. When I type over another set of words, the dotted lines and the highlight remains…

Thanks. The light blue background and the dashed boarder are both indicators of the text being marked with Preserve Formatting. You can toggle it off for the selected text via Format > Formatting > Preserve Formatting.

That seems to have solved the issue. Another case of a bug-that-isn’t-a-bug. :slight_smile: Just shows, too, that there’s a lot to learn when it comes to using Scrivener. Thanks, Jennifer, for the swift response…
