The Word Count plug-in is installed by default with EmEditor Professional. This plug-in counts words contained in the entire document and in a selection of text. The word count plug-in always counts the words in the entire document. It counts the words in a selection if you make a selection of text. To use the Word Count plug-in:
The Word Count custom bar appears. In the first column, the plug-in displays the types of query: characters, width, words, and lines. In the second column, the plug-in displays the count of words in the entire document. In the third column, the
plug-in displays the count of words in the selected text only.
You can click the Refresh Now button to recount the document and/or selection and update the word count, or press the "Refresh Automatically" button to reflect changes immediately. (This does not apply to a selection of text.)
The Word Count Plug-in queries are customizable. Click on the Customize button of the Word Count bar. The Customize Queries dialog box appears where you can create new, delete, copy and order queries. You can also click Reset to return all queries to the default settings.
Properties of an existing query, can also be edited by selecting the query to edit in the Customize Queries dialog box, and clicking Properties.
