Setting the page break flag as you did would normally be the way to handle the situation and should work as you expect, but currently an extra blank line is getting produced which is essentially doubling the page break. Since you have the formatting set and need as-is, I'd leave your settings alone and compile to .epub, then just do a quick fix in Sigil (a free epub editor) to remove the extra blank line from the top of the documents marked "as-is" and those occurring immediately after the empty pages. Save and then open the edited .epub in Amazon's Kindle Previewer to have it automatically converted to a .mobi.

Thanks! After checking it out, I am going to assume you mean Edit/Insert/Page Break as a workaround. (And keep my fingers crossed that this is remedied before my next project. )leshake wrote:There's an easy fix for this problem.
Remove all the automatic "page break befores."
Then manually insert page breaks at the end of any text where you want to start a new section in the Kindle book.
It works fine. Try it. It works.

Here's what I did.
1. created a news project.
2. I cut and pasted ten of my chapters so far.
3. Made sure folder and text names were right.
4. Went to compile.
5. Set Insert page breaks to auto.
6. Set "AS IS."
Then I compiled and guess what?
Got a complete table of contents and no blank pages.
That tells me that when I upgraded my project file became corrupted.

If you do the following, you can solve the problem.
1. Compile to epub.
2. Open epub in Sigil.
3. Find the following code line found early in the each document:
<p class="scrivener8"><br /></p>
4. Save the document
5. Open the document in Kindle Previewer.
6. Kindle previewer will convert the file and tell you where it is stored.
Now the mobi file will work without page breaks.
Can't wait for the "fix."
Still, Scrivener is easier than other methods of producing mobi docs.
