Wish list: target down to a word count

I’m working on a book project where I’ve overshot my word target (by 15%) and need to work down to a word count.

Obviously I can see how far above it I am, but intrigued as to whether there are any suggestions (or need) for some sort of “head down to a target” system. Some writing does demand that you cut, rather than lengthen.

If you have Growl, Scrivener can already notify you when you are back under a word count.
All the best,

True - I have, and it will. Thanks, Keith.
