Word count for selection

In the bottom of the screen, I see the word count of the current document I’m working in. It would be handy to see the word count of the current selection in that place when I select a block of text. I use this in Microsoft Word all the time, and I notice myself missing it.


Right-click the selection and you’ll see the word and character counts at the bottom of the context menu.

Sweet, that works! :slight_smile:

That is a great tip, very useful.

I just make the selection and then click on ‘Group mode’. The normal single doc stats appear at the bottom in the same place, except for the whole selection.
So if I select the Manuscript folder and then ‘Group mode’, I get the project stats at the bottom.
