I’ve compiled my Scrivener manuscript (Novel) and exported it in .docx format and am seeing random additional lines within documents. I have searched for “Invisibles” in Scrivener and used “Reveal Formatting” and “Show all nonprinting characters” in Word and cannot find the source of these frustrating lines. They only occur at the bottoms of pages and vary from one to three additional blank lines. Please see the screenshot below (you’ll have to scroll to the right to see all of the image):
Isn’t this just widow & orphan protection at work here? Scrivener doesn’t handle that kind of page layout itself (hence you won’t see it in PDF), but Word does, and it will respect the setting that is applied in the Layout compile option pane.
