Easy, on-screen total word count?

I’ve looked at the Tutorial and the forum, but I can’t find an answer to this. Maybe I’m missing something. Anyway,

I know I can use Project Statistics to get a total word count, but I’d really like this on-screen. If I click “Draft” in the sidebar, it says “7 items”, but no total word count.

I can see that each document has a word count, but that’s not nearly so interesting to me as total word count.

Is there someway to tell the footer to show total word count?

Hi ponch,

yes, an »edit scrivenings« session will give you the total word count at the bottom of the screen.

Hope that helps,


Alternatively, you can use View|Statistics|Show Project Targets, if you have a place to park the window on your screen.

Great! The floating window of stats seems to work well. And it even stays put in fullscreen mode. (Still, I would love it in the footer bar!).

Yet another reason I should peruse the forums more often…

as well as getting to meet the nicest people :wink:

All of whom have such modesty. :smiley:

true though…i`nit

It is indeed Vic. Help is always at hand here. Even the rough diamonds are real gems. :slight_smile:

Wellll…I wouldnt call juddbert a rough diamond, exactly, but I suppose he does have a few good point, somewhere. He does...doesnt he??

I couldn’t possibly say Vic. To presume would be rude. Maybe one day those defining qualities will come to light, till then… Erm, well, till then. :unamused:
