Good morning

I have downloaded the Beta of Version 3 and I am reading through the tutorial. In "The Editor" , the tutorial states:

Tip #2: To see the word count of your entire draft, hover over the search field in the toolbar with your mouse. Doing so will display a count of all the words in the Draft folder (on the left) and a count of the words you have written in the current session (on the right).

Maybe I am doing somethring wrong, but if I hoover my mouse here

I do not get this information shown - the cursor does not change.

For me it works in the "Quick Search & Targets" field but not in the "(Project-)Search" field. Probably the tutorial isn’t precise enough here?

Yes, this is the correct behaviour. The tutorial is referring to the Quick Search bar which is always shown in the toolbar. The Project Search field appears only when the magnifying glass is selected. I will see if we can make that clearer in the next version of the tutorial.
