Word Count in Binder

I have tried searching the forum, but maybe I don’t know what to call this…

I would love if items in the binder could have a tiny (optional) word count display next to its title. Folders would show the combined wordcount of its children.

Like this but better. You know, however programmers make things pretty.


I’m not sure if you know this already, but this is usually done in Outline view (highlight the draft folder and toggle ctl-3 to see the outline). There you can add columns, including Word Count and Total Word Count (which sums up subdocuments/folders), as well as targets and progress against targets.

(If Total Word Count isn’t in the release version of Windows, it will be in the new version currently in beta.)
