Wrong Project Goal

Scrivener appears to be counting the wrong project for my goals. I even move the folder to the trash and Scrivener still counts the words of that folder rather than the one in my manuscript folder. Let me also say that project statistics are registering the correct folder, just not the goals.

How do you reboot project goals?

I figured it out on my own, but will include this so that if others have the same problem, all they have to do is update the Compile.

It sounds like the search index got out of sync, that goals panel uses the index for word count estimation. For future reference you can also hold down the Option key (on the Mac of course) while viewing the File menu, to see a variation on the “Save” command that includes resetting the search index. On Windows this reset is in the Tools menu.
