Hello! I am compiling my project, and for the Section Layout for most of the documents in the project, I’ve specified “Remove from first paragraph and after empty lines.”
Right now I’m looking at chapters 11 and 12. As far as I can tell, they’re formatted exactly the same. Both are section type Chapter, and that section type is assigned the proper section layout. Both look identical in the editor, and I’ve run Convert to Default Formatting on both of them. Neither chapter has any styles applied to the text. The section layout has a “Override text and notes format,” if that matters (I tried turning it off and it didn’t fix the issue).
When I compile, Chapter 11 has the paragraph indents removed in the proper places. Chapter 12 does not. In fact, Chapter 12 seems to be following the ruler settings in the editor, because if I adjust the paragraph indent marker in the ruler, it affects the output.
It seems like there must be some place in the inspector for Chapter 12 that is saying, “Ruler overrides section layout,” but I don’t know of such an option. Any ideas? Thanks!
If I export the whole manuscript, it looks fine up until Chapter 12, even though there are many adjacent text documents. Furthermore, the problem lasts throughout Chapter 12; there are many blank lines between sections, but no indents are removed.
SInce most recent upgrade Compile has removed all first line indents for me. I have text set to compile as is, and have had no trouble in the past keeping indents that appear in the text.
Now however Compile removes all indents and removes all blank lines between paras (eg sometimes I leave a para space before and after a para to ‘highlight’ it for editing purposes, but now these are removed)
