Word Count vanished

I’m not sure what I’ve done, but suddenly the icon for my text docs have turned yellow and I’ve lost the word count at the bottom along with the target icon. It shows “General Text.” I’ve tried using a new text doc and copying and pasting from the yellow text doc, but it didn’t help. Is there a simple fix please? Thanks.

You have accidentally turned on Scriptwriting mode, which has a different footer bar from the standard text editing mode (and turns the icon yellow…)

Just type cmd-8 (the shortcut which toggles scriptwriting mode) and you’ll be back in standard mode.

(BTW This mode is per document, not per project, so you can mix and match if you want, but a new document will usually follow the mode of the current document you’re in.)
