Project targets & cut and paste

Will there be an option for the Session Target number to be unaffected by cut & paste actions with existing text?

If you check the “Session Target” > Allow negatives, cut & paste will not change your session counts. If you cut & paste without going negative, you should get the same count as it was before the cut & paste action. Hope this helps, if I have understood your request correctly.

Whoops, I created a duplicate topic, sorry about that. But anyway, my session counts are affected by cut and paste either way.

Actually, I figured out what’s going on. I’d set my session target, but sometimes I start the session with preexisting text in the document. I’d cut up those words, throw some into the notes section, reorganize text, and so forth. Then I cobble things together from some of those pieces. Cutting and pasting from that existing text messes up the session count before I even get to the subsequent writing. So I guess it’s best to do all of that stuff first, then hit the reset button. Or uncheck “count text written anywhere in the project” and use another editor window to cut stuff from.

Last question: When I click to reset the session target count, and I have the “count text written anywhere in the project” unchecked, will the session always anchor itself to the currently selected editor and associated document?
