Word count exclusions

Is there a way to exclude certain documents in the compile from the word count? Namely, my acknowledgments, author bio and the like. These don’t belong in a novel’s WC.

Thanks!

Hi,

Yes, choose the “Statistics” pane in Compile. There is a raft of options there that allows you to control exactly what goes into your word and character counts. For instance, you can exclude anything contained in the front matter folder, or you can filter out documents with a particular label or status or that are contained in a particular collection.

Hope that helps.

All the best,
Keith

That worked great.
