Incorrect Word Count - Hyfinated Words

I have searched the forms and could not see anything on this topic .

Scrivener counts hyfinated words as two words ware MS Word and other writing software counts them as one word. so when I compile it into word the word counts don’t match up.

I have searched the internet and a lot of sources say that hyfinated words are only one word.

I’m not sure if I am missing a check box in a hidden menu somewhere.

Thanks
Mark

Hello Mark,
I believe you mean hyphenated and as such if you use that to search the forum you will find many posts to help you out. Good luck.
