Firstly, I know that I can 'Show Project Targets' and enter there a total word count target and see a total word count actual for draft folder. For example, mine shows 50,000 of 80,000 words.

I would like to see these totals in Outliner (similar to Excel SUM function for a column)

I have mutiple chapters and have entered word targets for each chapter, which I can see in Outliner. However, I have to manually sum these to see if I have sufficient chapters and/or content in each chapter. In other words, does my current word count target add up to 80,000 ... or 95000 ... or 65,000 ...?
Is there something I am missing where I can see the total for the whole project of the targets I have set?
Any help appreciated

At the very right of the Column Headings bar of the outliner that is an angle bracket (>). Click this to get a menu of columns you can activate in the Outliner view. Activate the columns you want and then adjust their widths to suit.
