Show word count in binder?

I know that it’s possible to see the word count, both per item and total, in Outline view. Is there any way to see it in the binder itself? I feel as though I should know the answer, but I’m not having any luck finding it anywhere.

Thanks!

Have windows but should see word count in middle of footer bar of editor and if do scrivenings view of group of highlighted files/folders get word count of all chosen files.

I think the straight up answer is ‘No’. You cannot make word counts show up directly in the Binder.

The Outliner view, as you already know, is your answer for when for some reason you want to survey your constituent word counts.
