Something weird happening with copy and paste

When I copy a paste from another text editor and I press my ‘alt+shift+7’ key to change it to the the style I want, I get this weird font you see at the top of the pic. It’s supposed to look like the text at the bottom of the pic. Here’s the weird part. If I do a copy and paste in any other chapter the copy, paste, and style change works just fine. It’s only in the chapter I’m working in now. I have tried the following:

  1. Redefine style from selection on some text that was correctly defined. It redid the style for the entire book.

  2. Closed Scrivener and reopened it.

Any other ideas?

Now This chapter, and only this chapter, is doing this when I hit the enter key twice. What the heck?

Your document is in Script Mode.

Press Ctrl+8


Thanks, I wonder how in John Wayne’s butt I initiated that.

It normally happens when a writer’s brain slips into sleep mode.
