"Total Word Count" and "Total Target" in Outliner


I’m not sure if this is a bug or if I’m doing something wrong, but the “total word count” and “total target” columns in outliner doesn’t tally anything together. For the “total word count” it displays zero beside each chapter and for “total target” it simply repeats the “Target” column for that chapter so the word count goal that I set, not tallying it up chapter by chapter.

(The “words”, “Target” and progress tracker for the individual chapters, however, work fine).

If anyone knows what I can do to fix this I’d be grateful - thank you!

This is the expected behavior. The “Total” columns will total the word count or target of the current document and any sub-documents.

Thanks for replying. I presumed it would count cumulatively across all the documents so thank you for explaining that it doesn’t do that. Appreciate the reply - thanks!
