Seeing multiple selections as text, not index cards

Hello. I’m finishing a project. I did a save as, which is my normal way to keep old drafts. In the previous draft I was able to highlight multiple selections and see them as text, and most importantly see the word count for the multiple selections at the bottom of the window. Great for breaking out chapters.
Now whenever I highlight multiple selections I only see index cards.
How do I get back to the old way?
Thanks.

I just accidentally solved my own problem. Answer is - select multiples, go to VIEW and check SCRIVENINGS - you get all the text and the word counts.

Save as is a dangerous habit. You’re very likely to eventually get confused as to what copy of the project is current. Safer to rename a zip backup to save a version.
