Using the or tags is giving incorrect information, and I’m not sure why.
I have a project that is a number of independent stories. Each story is a number of documents inside an enclosing folder. When I compile a story, I select that story’s folder in the Contents pane of the Compile sheet, and “Include” is checked for the folder and all documents.
The compiled output shows a drastically different word count than the actual. For example, one story has 5,900 words and the tag converts to 19,800. Performing a word count in the output document (RTF in this case) confirms the actual word count is 5,900. Using the tag produces similar results, only more detailed.
The Scrivener editor shows the correct word count. If I select the folder in the Binder and am in Scrivenings mode, it shows a word count in the bottom bar of 5,900. And it’s not as simple as the tag is calculating the FULL word count of all the stories, because that would be over 50,000 words. So something more complicated is going on.
Is there some setting that controls those compile tags? Here is my Project Statistics Options sheet:
I would greatly appreciate any insight into this. Thanks!
