I gather that you use styles throughout your project, that is, that you have no text that doesn't have a style applied. In general, Scrivener assumes the opposite: that styles are used only for exceptional cases such as block quotes. You may well already be aware of this (it's discussed in section 15.5.1 of the Scrivener Mac manual) and have thought it through , but the downside of having all text styled is that you are always swimming upstream against Scrivener's design and have in particular guaranteed that you will need to work harder when it comes time to compile your project. Your choice, and I'll continue by assuming that you're going to keep styling everything .

One thing I would check ( and you may well already have looked at this and know it's not a problem) would be fonts. If you've included a font in your styles that iOS doesn't have, iOS might mess up. If you think this might be a problem, here's an article on how to address it: https://scrivener.tenderapp.com/help/kb/ios/using-fonts-across-platforms

I'd assume that you do, if you're typing along on Mac happily, but it might not hurt to check. (if I were setting up what you described, I'd have Body 1st's Next Style be Body, and Body's Next Style also be Body)
Silverdragon wrote:Finally, contrary to your impression, Scrivener on iOS does have a style menu. You can't create or modify styles on your iPhone, but you can apply those you've set up on your Mac. This is described in the Editor section of the iOS tutorial. Here are a couple of screenshots showing how to access it:

Silverdragon wrote:One thing that often trips me up is that while styles come over to iOS from Mac, the default text formatting (the one you set in Mac Scrivener Preferences) does NOT. I’ll set up my Writing Font of the Quarter on the Mac, then be happily typing along on my iPad, start a new doc and whammo! Last quarter’s font.
You can change the default formatting for new docs in iOS in much the same way, philosophically, that you do on the Mac: Select some text that has the right formatting, tap the paintbrush, and then tap on “Formatting options” in the Style menu. In the submenu that pops up, tap “Set Default Formatting.“ I wish I could always remember to do it....
