Today I found that dozens of chapters pasted last night have reverted to Calibri. Since the Settings value was already Palatino for new Scenes, and hadn’t seemed to work, last night I had selected All and manually changed font to Palatino. It’s as if the pasted text were somehow tagged to be Calibri, although it was pasted from an ASCII editor with no formatting possible.
I’ve re-selected the first 30 or so chapters and again manually set them to Palatino, but I’m wondering if the daily backup of the internal tagging system may be reverting some Scenes in some cases. FWIW, the program was active across the midnight threshhold, so it was opened on Monday and closed some hours later on Tuesday.
Also, FWIW, the Palatino selection is still sticking in Settings.
I’m trying to track this more carefully to see if it only happens if I save a certain way, or if a reverting scene is especially long or short, etc.
OK, here’s a test I just did:
- Create new Scene in existing document. Palatino is default Scene font.
- Copy & Paste ASCII text into new Scene.
- Confirm that it’s indeed displaying as Palatino.
- Close AS.
- Wait for .lock semaphore to disappear.
- Open AS.
- New scene is now in Calibri.
No midnight-crossing this time, so I’d say something is definitely happening.
