I can't find the setting that's causing this. In my Scrivener 3 beta for Windows document, I have em dashes. But when I compile it to MS Word Novel format, they all get changed to double hyphens. That's the opposite of what you normally want to happen. I'm on the latest beta that will expire at the end of July.

Sorry for taking so long to reply to this issue. Are you still experiencing this in the latest beta?

Sorry, I finished my novel and haven't started the next one yet. Yes, this was an old post!

Yes, I am experiencing this in .docx compiles with Beta 10. I've not tried it with a .doc compile.

Possibly related to this, I've found copying as MarkDown also converts em-dashes unexpectedly, in this case to triple-hyphens.
