Selection word count?

I was wondering if there’s an easy way to get the word count on just a selection of text? I have the word count at the bottom of my screen but the only way to figure out what I wrote in a particular session is to do math (ick! haha). I was hoping Scrivener had a feature that I was overlooking that would allow me to select a block of text and then it would tell me the word count.
Thanks for your help,

Hi Renee,

Welcome to the forum.

Highlight the selection, right-click/control-click on the selection; the word count for that selection is given near the bottom of the contextual menu.



Oh, I’m so happy!!! Thanks so much! :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:
