Help! Word count for chapters has disappeared!

I’m on an insane deadline, but everything was going along.

Now suddenly, the wordcounts at the bottom of each chapter have disappeared. Image of the bottom bar, below.

I have been depending on these to keep me on target (I use the total work wordcount window, too, but for me in the middle of revision, those per-chapter counts are critical). And I cannot find anything in documentation to bring them back.

I have to send this thing in to my editor in days. What do I have to do to fix this?

Thanks, rather frantically, in advance.


You are in scriptwriting mode. Go to Text > Scriptwriting and deselect whichever scriptwriting mode you are in (the top item in the menu). Or, just hit cmd-3.

All the best,

Thanks. I suspect in a fit of typing, I managed to hit CMD-3 and fell into the screenwriter segment, which I didn’t even know was there. I depend on Scrivener, but I’ve barely scratched the surface of what it can do. I run the living daylights out of it with the bits I use, though.
