Total Word Count


I’m hoping you can help me. I’ve added the Word Count, Total Word Count, Target and the Progress Bar but in the Draft / Manuscript File.

The one thing that isn’t adding up - I’ve set a target of, say, 3,000 words for a particular file. Instead of pulling the ‘Total Word Count’ into the Progress Bar, it’s pulling the ‘Word Count’ figure through for that particular file.

What I want it to do is pull the file AND sub-files through.

How do I do that?

Does this make sense? If not, I will happily submit files to elaborate further.

Thank you,


I’m bumping this as I’m also having this problem. I see blog posts online that show it’s possible but I’m unable to get it to work cumulatively, only per text file.
