How do I find the word count for all documents with a particular label?

Hello, everyone! This is my first post. I bought Scrivener last month and I absolutely love it.

I have been labeling in-progress scenes as yellow and completed scenes as green. Where can I see (for example) how many words are in the “green” scenes?

I have tried searching the forum archives, but I can’t seem to find the answer. Any pointers would be appreciated!

the easiest way would be to create a dynamic search collection
If using labels for yellow and green scenes then do a search by label color and when create search at bottom click save search as collection. Name it whatever and everytime you open that search it will search your project for those criteria, adding or deleting files according to their current label.

Now, click statistics icon if in toolbar or project>project statistics and will give total word count so far but if open the collection you want green or yellow and select all those files at once and NOW click selected documents in the statistics window will see word count of only those selected documents. I think this is what you want.
