I'm running High Sierra 10.13.4 on a Mac Mini with Scrivener 2.5. I recently compiled a short novel (50-60K words) in custom paperback format. The headers are upside down and reversed, as are the page numbers under 100. I've noticed this behavior also when just printing directly from Scrivener without compiling. I appreciate any advice.
TIA,
Mary

Hi,

This was a bug introduced into macOS that required a fix in Scrivener's code - 2.5 is quite an old version. You'll need to update to a later version of Scrivener, e.g. 2.9:

Of course, I recommend updating to Scrivener 3 ($25 for existing users) if you are on 10.13.

All the best,
Keith
