Since the Scrievener binder has a very strict tree-like structure with nodes that go from top toward the bottom, why can’t the “upstream” nodes calculate the word count and % of completion of the “downstream” nodes?
So, if I have this:
 Chapter 1
 sub-something 1
[t] Scene 1 - 1000 words goal, 800 complete
[t] Scene 2 - 1000 words goal, 800 complete
 sub-something 2
[t] Scene 1 - 500 words goal, 300 complete
[t] Scene 2 - 500 words goal, 300 complete
I would expect that  sub-something 1 infers that its goal is 2000 and 1600 complete, while [ ] sub-something 2 infers that its goal is 1000 and completed 600, respectively. Similarly, the  Chapter 1 node should “know” that its goal is 3000 words and completed 2200.
It doesn’t make a lot of sense to manually set the word count on the top nodes… You have to manually do it every time. The goal, I can see. Maybe there should be a “calculated goal” and a “set goal.” The calculated goal adds up all downstream nodes, while the set goal is manually set. It will allow you to see if your goal expectation for the chapter is way off from the sum of goals for the downstream nodes…
Seems to me that if the system can display the tree, it should also be able to make these calculations… Is there a plan for this, or is there an explanation of why it’s not doable or desirable?
