This one is for Keith, probably.
In two places, one in a 194,000-word novel and again in a 50,000-word novella, I had a weird thing happen.
When I compile to epub, sometimes part of a line is styled and another part is not. If I place the cursor anywhere in the line of text, Scrivener claims it has a style. When I compile it and read it in Apple Books, part of the line has the style, and part of it does not.
The only way I can know this is because Books changes the font size (relative to the reader-chosen font size) due to some effing arbitrary rules they have. (I have everything styled, which I realize some recommend against, but I have a legit reason).
So what I end up with is half the line in my chosen style, and half not, witnessed by the font size being different (I also use ‘As Is’ for text).
I think I have narrowed it down a bit: The two instances each had an em dash mid-sentence. After the em dash was where the unstyled text appeared. And there was a single word joiner added before the em dash.
To fix this, I rewrote the entire paragraph.
But there is most-definitely a bug hiding in there.
This is on a MB Pro M1 under Big Sur v1.1 with the latest build of Scrivener.
