I’ve gone nuts adding things to the outliner, to see if I can keep track of EVERYTHING (thank you, custom meta-data), which necessitates narrowing some of the columns. And it wasn’t until I did that that I noticed a difference between two columns I’ve had in there for a while: Total Words vs Total Target.
Total Words is just a number: “1234”
Total Target (how many you’re aiming for in that document) is “1234 words”.
Having the word “words” tacked on there adds an ellipsis to the column when you make the column really narrow – even though I know the number refers to words. (I don’t think it can refer to anything else, can it?)
Is the word “words” really necessary there?
