Word Count at Bottom of Text Files?

Hey y’all –

After I upgraded (not the most recent upgrade, but the one before), the word count in the bar at the bottom of my text files in the project I’m working on disappeared. Is there a simple way to turn it back on? It’s still on in the other projects I have, but I can’t figure out why. Thanks!

You likely inadvertently toggled the footer bar off. You can turn it back on in the View menu, under Layout. “Show Footer View”

Also, check you’re not accidentally in scriptwriting mode, which substitues the style menu for the word count bar.

It was on scriptwriting mode – thanks, guys!
