What I would like to do is be able to see at a glance where I am in the manuscript in terms of word count. If I'm revising a 170,000 word manuscript, I constantly need to know my current position in the manuscript in terms of either word count or percentage, anywhere within these 70 documents in the draft folder. I have been doing it by selecting multiple numbered chapters from the beginning and seeing the total word count at the bottom, but this is awkward, and requires that I perform the selecting action over and over again in a single session so I can see the word count or percentage point of multiple different places in the manuscript. I have taken to writing these "manuscript position" word counts in the names of the chapters themselves (i.e. Chapter 30 - 53,000 words, Chapter 40 - 74,000 words, etc.), but this is obviously not ideal, and it changes during the revision.
I know we can get a word count to the cursor position of a SINGLE document by right clicking (or control clicking) in the document and looking at the "writing tools" section, where the cursor position in terms of word count will be displayed as a part of the whole, like
I was hoping that if I selected multiple documents (by selecting the document container, the Draft folder itself), this would also work. But it doesn't work with multiple documents selected.Words: 4,234 of 4,760
Am I missing anything here that would help me see at a glance what my word count position is within the entire manuscript?
