I’m using v1.53. When I highlight a text block and then add a new line of text within that text block, unwanted white space is created in the text block. How can I retain a fully highlighted background without unsightly white gaps? Thank you.
Sorry, I’m not sure what you mean. Could you elaborate or, even better, post a screenshot?
Here’s a screen shot showing the white gaps. (Sorry I didn’t send it with the post. I tried dragging the file in, and only the file name showed. I didn’t see until now that I needed to go to “upload attachment” below.) Thanks!
That is very strange! Scrivener relies on the OS X text engine, so I doubt there’s much I can do, but you could you please zip up and send me that particular file, to support AT literatureandlatte DOT com? I’m interested in seeing why those white gaps appear myself…
Sorry Keith. I know how to zip a file using Stuff It, but don’t know how to zip a Scrivener text document, which is where I created the document (and others) that have white gaps when I add text within highlighted blocks of text. I tried dragging the document from Scrivener to the desktop, etc., but it wouldn’t copy to the desktop. Can you advise?
You can either zip up the whole project via the Finder and send me that, or just select the affected file in the binder in Scrivener and use File > Export > Files… and choose to export it as RTFD (probably the best format to choose to ensure it stays the same as it appears there). Then send me the .rtfd file.
Looking at your image it seems to me that, somehow, in the lines that have the white space underneath, you’ve set the text to superscript. Look at the relation of the line of text to the tab and paragraph marks that go along with those lines.
Edited to include tab marks.
Edit again. Actually, it’s more weird, but you seem to be in superscript most of the time until the last line. The dots marking the spaces are not mid-point on the line of characters in most of them … suggesting that the spaces are actually non-superscripted in many cases. The line(s) at the top that seem to behave normally have no spaces. So the interesting question is why you don’t have those white areas in the lines at the bottom. I still think it’s the superscript that is causing it.
