The Total Editing Time statistic shown on the General page of the file 
Properties dialog box seems to be calculated as the sum of the times during 
which the document remains open in editing sessions, regardless of whether it 
is the active document or not. If I create 3 documents one after another, enter 
a little data in each document, spend most of the next hour working on the 
third document, then save and close all 3 documents, each document shows a 
total editing time of 1 hour (give or take a few seconds). That makes it look 
as if 3 hours of work has been done in only 1 hour of clock time, which is not 

Total editing time is a valuable piece of information which can be used for 
estimating efficiency and productivity and also, most importantly, for charging 
customers for work done. For these purposes it is essential that the time shown 
be realistic.

Total editing time should be calculated on the basis of the time during which a 
document is the active document (as it is in MS Word).
