Character counts with and without spaces

Is there any way of making Scrivener count characters with and without spaces, according to need? Editors I write for often specify a character count including spaces. My understanding is that Scrivener just counts characters without spaces, and I can’t figure out how to change that.

You can get a character count for the current document without spaces by going to View > Statistics > Text Statistics (or it might be called Document Statistics in the version you are using). There’s no way of getting such a count for the whole project, though.
All the best,

THANK YOU! for short texts, this is good enough. For whole books, it might be a problem…
