Adding Targets to a Document

Need to produce a 1,000-word article? Shooting for 3,500 words in your next scene? Consider setting a document target. A document target tracks progress for the specific document in which it’s set.

Follow these steps to set a document target:

1. In the Binder, select the document for which you want to set a target.

2. Click the Set Target button on the Status bar, shown in Figure 14-5.

A Target window appears.

3. Enter the desired count in the Target For This Document text box, and then select Words or Chars (characters) from the Words drop-down list.

4. If you want a notification when you meet, or fall below, your document target, select the Show Target Notifications option.

This option works the same as described in the preceding section.

5. Click OK.

A progress bar appears in the Status bar, shown in Figure 14-5. Just like with manuscript and session targets, the progress bar changes color from red to green while you move closer to your target.

The progress bar colors can be changed as outlined in the “Setting a draft and session target” section, earlier in this chapter.

The word count in the status bar changes to display the target amount, changing from 15 to 15/100 in the example in Figure 14-5.
