I’ve just upgraded to V3 and transferred my work across… but there’s a strange discrepancy in the word count that is doing my head in. Basically, V3 is counting lower than V2. Over a 50,000 word doc it is giving me a word count of 200 words less than V 2. Each sub-section is also out - in each section of approx 1000 words the new version “loses” between 10 and 20 words. I’ve compared a few sections word by word and they are identical! Any idea what’s going on? Anyone else found this? Which version do I believe? Thanks…
I don’t know what thread it was in, but soon after It was released Keith (the developer) mentioned that Scriv3 uses a slightly different algorithm for word counts. Something to do with hyphenated words, things like that. I’ll try to find the original post and link here.
Thank you so much for explaining this. I didn’t realise word-count algorithms differed. So I am very relieved to know I’m not losing or gaining precious words! Appreciate your help.
You’re very welcome.
