Two more quick ones

Often when I compile, in a few documents, the first paragraph at the start of the chapter is often not indented. Is something being overwritten?

On a few pages, I have the strange pound sign appearing (#) at the start and end of the chapters. I tried to view invisible markup but I cannot see them in the editor. They only appear after compiling.

thanks,

First line indents are defined in the Settings pane of the Section Layout editor. See Section 24.2.9 in the Scrivener manual.

Hashmarks are probably coming from the Separators pane of the Compile Format editor, see Section 24.4.
