Given the variety of issues you have reported, I'm leaning to Sanguinius's "installation might not have fully completed correctly". Conflicts/issues (false positives and removal/blockage of portions) between certain antivirus apps and Scrivener have been reported numerous times, with those antivirus apps proving to be the issue (Scrivener passes Norton antivirus and Malwarebytes antimalware with flying colors). It may be time to consider uninstalling, re-downloading and reinstalling Scrivener... possibly with your antivirus turned off briefly or tweaked to exempt Scrivener download/install/presence... or try a different antivirus.

I was surprised that it didn't ask for my serial number again and was pleasantly surprised that all my files remained intact. Is it normal to remember serial numbers? Or is that a new Windows 10 thing?
I rebooted, opened it up and went to Help > Manual and tada! Works like a dream.
It's still having text wrap problems though in that one document (not the whole project but document), however the dash isn't an issue anymore. It just still reads something like this:
When I write this sentenc
e it doesn't wrap properl
The odd thing is that in most documents, this doesn't happen. Some I've written myself some I've copied/pasted. It's odd, but it's all a draft anyway. I'm sure when it comes time to finalize it and I use the default format for the final draft then it'll be fine. For now, it's just a small annoyance, but one I can live with.
I just love this software though! I have to admit that it's intuitive and so very helpful. I just love it!

Okay, I just read about that and the manual (which I didn't have early on when I noticed this problem). I thought I had checked something like this but it must have been something different since the manual says "a blue dashed box (will be) around the text". That is unfamiliar so I decided to try it and see what would happen.
It worked as described but when it toggled it back off it didn't fix the problem. This has to be a bug of some sort, but I can't imagine what is causing it nor how to get rid of it.
Again, the problem with just rewriting the paragraph (which I really don't mind doing) is that though it is only a single paragraph of many that appears to be glitchy, I'm wondering if I will miss another instance in the future. I'd rather know how to fix it because what if an entire lengthy document does the same?
Ah well, life isn't always perfect and also again, I'm still very happy with it and the tone of this forum.
