I’m brand new to Scrivener and still finding my way around. I’ve successfully imported a large section of a novel and am ready to keep writing. One thing I do need to know though is my word count. How do I check the word count for each section of writing, for each chapter or for the project overall?
You should see the word count for the current section in the footer bar. You can get the word count for your entire draft by going to Project > Project Statistics… To get the word count of a chapter, the quickest way is probably to load the chapter in scrivenings mode (combined text mode) and use the footer bar again. Or you can show the “Cumulative word count” column in the outliner.
