Word Count Target

Hi! Is there any way to keep the “Synopsis” fields from counting in the Word Count Target for my document? I have a paper with a specific word target, and I’m noticing that the synopsis fields in my outlines are artificially pushing up my word count.

In general, I’m a big Scrivener fan! Thanks for such a wonderful program.


I’m not entirely sure what you mean - the synopses don’t get counted in the word counts. The only time they would ever be counted is if you have entered the word count variable into the text (<$wc>) and include the synopses in the compile - in that case they would be included in the word count that replaces the variable. In all other cases, they are not.

Thanks for the kind words!

All the best,
