I am working with a large project on more than 50,000 words according to the PO. But when I opened this project in my MemoQ 8.4 (server TM), it only displays the wordcount for the first file whereas for the rest of the files in the project there is only a question mark displayed instead of the word count for each file. What is the reason for this, and how can I get the actual word count for each file (weighted word count, which I already have set as displayed)?

Have you tried Statistics? Jun 16, 2018

In the Project home, Documents tab in the ribbon, click Statistics. This calculates your statistics and you should be able to see the actual wordcounts in the different match levels. To get the weighted wordcount, enable the corresponding checkbox in the dialogue box.

I see question mark as well Jul 16, 2018

I know I can click on Statistics in order to see the detailed analytics, but I know that I should also see the total word count beforehand and get an idea about the total capacity.
Instead, I see a question mark.
I'm using memoQ server 8.4
Your insights will be appreciated.
