I might be doing this wrong, but Scrivener’s export for writing history isn’t working as I expect.
I used Project > Writing History > Export to export the writing history.
I checked “Words (Draft)” and “Words (Draft Total)”.
What I expect to see in the CSV:
where “Draft Total” represents the total words in the manuscript draft at the end of the day, like you would see by using Project > Statistics > Compiled > Words.
I would expect this number to change daily by the amount in "Words (Draft), starting from about 47K.
What I actually see:
Date,Words 10/19/20,103,0 10/20/20,1428,47278 10/21/20,503,47951 10/22/20,864,0 10/23/20,-9,0 10/26/20,2063,0 ... and so on ...
Date and Words(Draft) are correct, but the “Draft Total” is usually 0. It’s also missing the header.
Any thoughts? Is there a different way I should try to get a history of total words in the manuscript draft at the end of the day? I’m open to anything including external programmatic solutions.
Edited to add: I sync this project via DropBox between two Macs and an iPad, in case that matters.
