OK, by popular demand: Chapter by Chapter -- or CbC, for short!
CbC essentially manages a book manuscript, which is kept in separate chapter files. This add in, which works as a small separate program, sits on top of Microsoft Word.
Once CbC is open, one enters a new chapter title, which opens up a blank page in Word, where one writes or imports a chapter, or at least the beginnings. Then start another chapter, and so on. Soon CbC displays in its window a list of all your chapters, all stored in sepapate Word files, including word count for each one. One can drag and drop each chapter into a different order, rearranging one's book. And if one needs to see the entire book in one file, a click of the mouse brings them all together in a single file, where one can do editing, paginating, change format to suit a particular publisher.
I'm working on a huge book project. I've tried so many different programs to manage the project -- and I always return to CbC. And it's free.
