Character Count - This might be a TIP

For NEWbies and OLDbies:

I searched the manual and this Windows forum for an answer to the following: Does a character count include spaces?

I did not have any luck finding an answer - however, there could be one hiding somewhere. ANYWAY, I ran an exercise and was able to determine that character counting in Scrivener does include spaces in between words. Scrivener does not appear to count paragraph indent.

For what it’s worth.
