New project

Hi, new to Scrivener, finding my way around. Started one project, ongoing and find the total word count so useful. However, I imported another project from word and I split into chapters. I can see word count on each section but going back I am unable to find the entire word count. What have I done?or not done?

To see the total word count in the footer bar, you need to load the entire Draft folder into a Scrivenings session.

You can also see the total count in the Project → Project Statistics pane. If you don’t get the results you expect, check the Options to see if you’re only counting the current Compile group, and/or make sure the imported material is in the Compile group.

If you haven’t already, I’d recommend taking a look at our Interactive Tutorial, available from the Help menu. It’s a good overview.
