Downloading, Documentation, Modifications, and Support

A macro to count text characters and spaces in the document or in selected text.

Why use it? Some editorial tasks may require a count of both characters and spaces. (WordPerfect's File>Properties>Information>Characters does not count spaces in its character count.) The macro is a simple example of how to count text items in your document using a "loop-and-increment-counter" approach. (Annotated.)

New with WordPerfect Office X8 (April 2016): Character count (Tools, Word Count -or- File, Properties) now includes counting characters with and without spaces.
