On Saturday, I cut and pasted passages from my notes section into my main manuscript, bringing the total to 31,612.

Today I have been editing a scene - subtracting some words but adding more to the passage. However, my session word count is stuck at 13, and the word count at 27,563! Minus 4049 words!

Naturally, I began to panic - so I used a web browser word counter and my manuscript is actually at 32,070.

How can I get the word count to start behaving? Obviously, I know I can make a new project and copy over, but I'm a little concerned about losing precious Writing History. Any ideas?

Fixed - I had toggled off "include in compile" on one large scene.
