Hi, me again, I have searched through forums and not found anyone with this specific problem so it must be me.
I have clients I have to meet monthly word counts for.
A particular contract is going to end at 20,000 words.
When I compile (I UNCHECK the box saying Include Comments/ Footnotes etc) but the Wordcount for the entire book is still coming up in my <$wc100> on their manuscript Title Page as thousands over what the wordcount is at the bottom of the Scrivener pane.
At the bottom of the pane is says 21,000 but on the title page after compiling is says 26,000
I have no extra folders in the manuscript so unless it is counting the trash? what else could it be including when I have clearly set the dont count footnotes/ comments?
I am going to have to let this got for a while because i need to put a new question up regarding another more pressing concern. I will for now just continue to enter the correct word count manually for the client
There is however another client’s book which I could share with you. It has the same issue but only by about 900 words The word count issue is not as extreme as the other one (I’m sure it is something I am doing wrong, not Scrivener)
I have two issues on this book. …it only adds 900 words and:
If you can also solve the Contents page numbers mystery for me. This is the only book I have page number issues with and I cant work out why.
I’ve been driving to London and at work all day and on my way now to another client. Full day of meetings morrow won’t get back to it till the weekend doing all the fixes manually in the meantime. I see a notification but haven’t had time to look
