Scrivener documents added via sync aren't tallied in total word count

I downloaded the trial of Aeon Timeline 2 and have been experimenting with the Scrivener sync feature. I created items in my Aeon Timeline, opened my Scrivener project in the Sync menu, and then dragged items from the timeline into the appropriate manuscript folder. I thought adding new scenes couldn't get any simpler! But then I realized that the scenes I originally created in Aeon Timeline and "dragged" into my Scrivener binder aren't tallied in the Total Word Count feature in Scrivener. Scrivener does show the word count for the individual subdocuments, but it doesn't include them in the Total Target for the folder they are a part of. The Total Target only tallies subdocuments originally created in Scrivener. The only workaround I've been able to figure out is to create a new subdocument in Scrivener and then copy and paste the title, synopsis, and content from the one created in Aeon Timeline. But I have 200+ subdocuments and don't really want to have to do this manually. Is there a fix for this?

Hi, How are you viewing the Total Word count in Scrivener? Scrivener may be only counting documents that are included in Compile, which by default documents created via Aeon Timeline are not. There may be an option in Scrivener to change what documents are used to calculate the Total Word Count, or you can tick the "Include in Compile" checkbox in the inspector for the documents created by Aeon Timeline and see if that changes the word count.
