Lost my Word Count Box


I am relatively new to Scrivener, but am loving it.

I have been editing my first manuscript and somewhere along the way, I managed to lose my word count box that lived at the bottom of the screen.

I have been trying to figure out how to get it back - any suggestions?

Hello PJ, and welcome to the forum.

Have you, perhaps, entered Scriptwriting mode? If you go to Format > Scriptwriting > Script Mode - Screenplay and it is checked, then you have.

Selecting it again will untick that option and should restore the word count.

That mode has a Cmd+8 keyboard option, and I tend to activate it without realizing it if Iā€™m typing fast.
