Weird persistent space

This is by no means a giant thing, just something that someone with mildly OCD tendencies could be annoyed by. :slight_smile:

When I set up my Chapter folders for my novel, I put five files in each folder (because each chapter was going to visit five POVs): A, B, C, D, and E. And instead of re-creating them for every folder, I Simple Duplicated the five files and carried the copies down to the next folder.

When I was done with this, I realized “B” had a space in it, because the file always showed up with the icon with writing on it, indicating text. So I went through and deleted the space out of every “B”, so that all the files would show up as empty.

When I quit Scrivener and reopened it, all of the “B” files showed up as having text again. No matter what I do, in fact, they always show up as having writing in them. I don’t know how I did this! But apparently I can’t make it go away. (So I suppose I’d better go write some text in those files, to save myself the mental anguish.)

Just to be clear, did you switch off the corkboard or outliner for these files and delete the underlying text? And when you return to those files, is the space back in there, or is it just the icon that’s wrong?

I don’t know how to switch off the corkboard or outliner for files, so I’m guessing I didn’t do that. I selected the files one at a time out of the Binder.

I don’t think there is a space actually in the files, I think it’s just the icon that is wrong.

Like I said, this is no big deal (doesn’t seem to affect anything in the project), I just thought it was weird.

Could you send me the project, by zipping it up and sending it to support AT literatureandlatte DOT com?
