The third panel of Highland’s Sidebar is Goals/Stats.
If the sidebar is not visible, go to View > Toggle Sidebar or press ⌘ Command + 0. Goals/Stats can be accessed by selecting the [goal-stat-icon] or by pressing ⌘ Command + 3.
Set a goal for your writing, measured in words or pages, by clicking Set Goal inside the circle. Enter your goal, select words or pages from the dropdown menu, and Highland will track your progress. Every time you reach your goal, a milestone will be added to you Goal History.
Document stats are updated in real time. Highland tracks Total Words, Selected Words (select any amount of text), Pages, and Reading time (calculated at 250 words/min).
For timed writing sessions, check out the Sprint tool.
Write Sprints are tracked separately at the same time as your Goals and Milestones. You can set a specific number of minutes you want to continuously write, and you’ll also track how many new words you wrote during that time.
Click the View Report button to generate a report of all of your Milestones and completed Sprints.
