word and character count

from the help menu i understand that i can find the w &c count live in the grey bar down the editor. right? wrong, i do not see anything in the grey bar. is there anything i have to set up in order to show them? thanks!

I are writing in script mode for a screenplay or something? The active counter is not visible when this mode is turned on (presss Cmd-3 to toggle).

great! thank you!
