This is a trick I use almost every day. If I type something in a document that isn't in the manuscript, or if I exit Scriv to sync the timeline, I lose my session word count.

Here's how I deal with that.

I have a document just for setting the session word count. It looks like this:

Session.jpg (269.12 KiB) Viewed 1047 times

I select the number of "words" that I want to set the session count to.
I type Ctl-X to cut them.
I reset the session target
I paste the "words" back into the document.
