I tried many times to update the style in scrivener, but it changes nothing. I hope the next update will correct the problem. Again, this problem happens only since maybe two months (maybe more, I dont' remember exactly). Before that, everything was working fine, so I think an update created that problem.

Hi, Thanks for your reply!
The style I use for this chapter number in scrivener is a custom style I created. In Word, there is no style assigned to it, all the text and titles have no style in Word, but keep the same font and size than in scrivener. Except that chapter number who just loses everything (font and size) in Word.
When compiling, I was not overriding text and notes. I did not see that, after one of the update, I had to assign another layout, because the one I chose was not assign anymore. So I chose "section text". Still, it did not work. I tried with "As-is" "New page" and other, but the chapter number never comes out right.
But I noted something strange with that style. Everytime I quit scrivener and open it again, the style lost its size... weird... Another weird thing is that I created a new style for the chapter number and gave it a different name (without the drawing) and when I quit scrivener and open it again, the style stays the same. But, when I compile my chapter, it does exactly the same in Word by losing the font and the size of the style.
Please note that the other styles I use in scrivener, I created them from a default style that was already in scrivener (so I did not add a new style from nothing like I did for the chapter number). Maybe that is why... And also note that I am using a custom scrivener's theme. I also tried erasing the drawing, and it does not help.

That box that says "override text and notes formatting" is the default; you'll need to uncheck it in every section layout to get rid of it.
