Barbara, what does "pages (paperback)" and "pages (printed)" mean?

Barbara O'Connor said...

From the Help section: The paperback page count is based on words-per-page (set via the Options tab) and assumes one word to be six characters, based on typographical standards, just to give you a rough idea on what the page count might be in a trade paperback.

I assume the pages printed means the manuscript pages but Scrivener does a weird thing and won't number the pages consecutively if the chapters are in individual files.

I don't really pay much attention to pages anyway. I use the word count.
