Unwanted hash tags

I inserted an image in my document which appears on the left side of the page. After I compiled it, there is a hash tag to the right of the image in the center of the document level with the top of the image and one center right of the image level to the bottom of the image.

Where are these hash tags coming from and how do I get them to not show up when the document is compiled? They are not visible in the Scrivener document. I’m using Scrivener 3.2.2

Thank you for your assistance.

When you leave a blank line in your document, several of Scrivener’s default compile formats assume it’s a section break, and dutifully insert a section marker (“blank line separator”, in the manual). There are two ways to avoid this:

  1. Don’t insert blank lines, or
  2. Edit your compile format so that blank line separators aren’t used, or so that the blank line separators aren’t hash tags.

Chapter 24 in the manual discusses how to edit the compile formats. Section 24.4 discusses separators in detail.

Hope this helps!
