Formatting problem with numbered lists (and maybe bulleted lists too)

  1. Create a numbered list.
  2. Try formatting the first word in any of the numbers.
    3. This is what I am getting.
  3. This is what is expected.

Is this a known issue? Is there a way around it (I know that I can insert a space before the word, but that throws the rest of the list out of alignment.

I am using Scrivener 1.9.8 under Windows 7 Professional 64 bit.

Thank you for your assistance.


I get the same thing, so it isn’t just you. I get it with bulleted lists, and numbered. The same whether I press ctr-B for bold and type, or highlight later.

Also, I tried to get tricky and entered a space bar then the first word. Then highlight and bold the first word. Then remove the space. When the space was removed, the formatting shifted to included the bullet or numeral.

Yes, that happens here as well. Thanks for confirming.
