I am trying to export a single chapter in a larger Scrivener file to Microsoft Word. The chapter is 13 single-spaced pages. When I open it in Word, it is only 6 single-spaced pages. I have tried exporting the chapter and I have tried compiling it as a Word file, both yielding the same results. I have tried exporting and compiling to a .doc, .docx, .rtf, .rtfd (which Word does not open) and they all show a truncated chapter. Finally, I copied and pasted the chapter in Word, which worked but Word does not recognize my footnotes that way, which is a major problem (the footnotes are present but as part of the document text).

I am running Scrivener 2.8.1 and Word 2016.

Could you please zip up the project - or create a new project, drag the problematic document into it and zip up that - and send it to us at AT for testing?

Thanks and all the best,
