Corkboard word count ?

Before posting to the wish list and annoying the developers (again 8) ) …

I want to see how many words each of my chapters have in a summary way … such as in the top right corner of the corkboard cards ? Is there such a function ?

You can’t show the word counts on cards, as the corkboard is for a limited set of information only (but you can Ctrl-click on cards and see the word count in the contextual menu). You can show the word count in the outliner, though (which is for showing all of the meta-data available), by choosing to show the word count column.
All the best,
Keith
