For some reason words with mm in have become highlighted in yellow. I didn't do this knowingly (in Scrivener 3). So I highlighted an example and went to Format--Highlight--Remove Color but the highlight remains. I also tried doing this using the Highlight icon in Formatting bar with no luck.

You haven't by any chance still got a search running have you?

Project Search (cmd-shift-f) highlights matches in yellow, so if you've searched for 'mm' at some point...

br--Brilliant! I don't know how mm got into Search, but when I tested it out just now, words with highlighted mm came up . That must have been the cause. Thanks so much.
