Target, character count and line break


I’ve noticed Scrivener counts line breaks as characters for its targets. Is there any way to deactivate it? It may seem trivial, but when handling texts that must have a very precise length, it easily makes a difference :slight_smile:. People on the receiving end usually check character counts in Ms Word and such, but those seem not to count line breaks.


Plus, when I use placeholder tags to display character and word counts, it ends up being “wrong” for people reading the files in .doc :-/.

Has anyone been troubled by that? is there a setting I should look for, that’d make scrivener not count line breaks? :slight_smile:
