Word Counts in Scipts

I’m wondering if there is a way to turn on the word/character counter at the bottom of script windows. I’ve noticed it is “off” on my srcipts, but not on my other projects.

In general, is there an easy way to toggle that on & off?

Thanks.

Hi Glenn,

No, the word count isn’t displayed in script mode. Is there a reason you need it? Word counts aren’t usually something scriptwriters need to think about, are they?

All the best,
Keith

Keith,

Not usually. In this case it would be helpful. My reason for asking was mainly because I couldn’t figure out how to toggle it on/off.

I was able to get a word count by copy/pasting into a Word doc. So I got what I needed in this instance.

Thanks.
