controlling document inclusion in word count/statistics

Is there a way to control the inclusion of an individual document in word count and statistics without affecting inclusion in compile? Example: The header page in the short story template currently is included in all project statistics and word counts.


Not presently. There is a planned feature which will provide more control in a compile pane; basically a way to exclude certain documents; whether footnotes should count; etc. This will however only impact the <$wc> and derivative placeholders. As for the project statistics itself, the presumption is you don’t need the cover sheet while you are doing principle writing, so just temporarily exclude it from the compiler. Once you get down to the point of submissions and need that page, you’ll already know if you are on target.
