Ghost phrases that persist in compile

Hi. I’m not a brand new user but I am still new to the secrets of compile. When I compile a single chapter in my non-fiction book, in both MS Word and PDF compiles, I get long-deleted notes at the end of my chapter printing in the compiled output. I go back to my original and make sure it ENDS at the last period, then re-compile and there they are again - at the end of the compiled document. I even tried copying the text and putting it into a different Section document. Same thing. Nothing but the document is checked in the compile menu.

These things should be dead and gone. Call them zombies – they’re eating my brain!

Can anyone help?

Sorry! Problem solved. There WAS something else checked, far far down the chapter list. My bad. Sorry!
