How do I get a word count for my draft

I see a word count at the bottom of each chapter. But I can’t figure out how to get a word count for my draft. Without that Scrivener doesn’t work for NaNoWriMo

sorry, I missed the iOS tag

Looks like you’re on iOS.

I searched for “word count” in the iOS Tutorial, which pointed to the Compile function as the way to see the complete manuscript word count. There may be other methods.

To do compile in iOS:

  • Open your project
  • Navigate to a doc within the manuscript/draft folder
  • Press the share icon (docs with up arrow)
  • Press Compile
  • Word count for all documents within the manuscript/draft folder will be listed at the bottom.


Thanks Jim, that seems to have done it.
The statistics tools would be very nice to include in the iOs version.
