Random Highlighting in Compose

Hello. New to scrivener here. A few of my documents are displaying random highlighting in composition mode (not in editor). Not sure what is going on, but makes it difficult to edit in that space. Screen shot attached. The dark background is my default and the lighter part is what I am calling “highlighting.”

This post and what precedes and follows it might help:
