#44 Word counter

texmakerx (141)

The text analysis function is pretty fancy, but does not appear very useful on a regular basis.
However, a word counter is pretty often required. It would be nice to implement a word counter to the text analysis function; this counter would be apparently better than the existing ones as there is already options on the selection of the nature of the text (normal, comments, commands)

    Closed because the text analysis function shows the number of words now. (and I don't know anymore if this counter was added before or after this request)

    Speaking of fancy functions: How hard would it be to implement a word count that works across multiple source files that are included into a master file? And ignoring anything within a figure environment?

    Not very difficult...

    That would be a VERY useful feature. Would give you word count as needed when you want to submit a scientific paper of limited length. Optionally, footnote text should also be excluded (or reported separately).
    Thanks for all your great work!! :-)

    I would like to support this petition!
    By the way in the analize text option the words are referred to as phrases?
