When I add a new page in the Editor the text as I start typing is highlighted yellow. Why is that? How do I turn this off so it no longer is the default?

Is the text itself highlighted, or is the current line in the editor highlighted?

(You can tell by typing more than one line and seeing if the highlight moves when the cursor does.)

Turn the current line highlight off in the Scrivener -> Preferences -> Appearance -> Main Editor pane.

Turn text highlighting off with the Format -> Highlight command.

Awesome thanks Katherine.

It was highlighting every line so I found the culprit in Preferences/Editing/Formatting where I noticed that the sample text ( the Nietzsche quote ) was highlighted yellow.

I clicked on the highlighting button and voila!

A great first result for me on the forum!

All the best and thanks again
