Hi,
I am looking for a way to set targets for multiple documents at once. For instance if I have 14 documents and 3 of them have a target of 3,500 words, is there a way to set those 3 documents to have the same target without having to do it one by one? My project has 45 sub documents and I'd rather not have to do it one by one.

thanks.

Multiple documents at once, no,

Speediest solution: open the draft in outliner, add the "target" column, then type in the target counts while using the up and down (or tab) keys for swift navigation. You can use copy and paste if you want to type the same target multiple times.

Going forward, you could create a document with a specific target and then save it as a template for future use.

Slàinte mhòr.

Thank you. That's faster than the way I was doing it, so it's a good start!
