I have read every answer to this problem on the forum, with no luck fixing it. Everything in my novel looks great in Scrivener but when I export it to WORD format several chapters have the left side indented further than they should be. The rest of the manuscript looks fine but these chapters will not render correctly. All the settings are exactly the same and I have tried to manually fix this inside scrivener but there's no way to tell there's a problem until it exports.

This forum is for providing tips for other users, not asking for technical help. A moderator might spot this and move it for you, but you’d be better off posting in the Mac Technical Help forum.

Screenshots of your settings always help too, as does information about OS version and Scrivener version.
