    There is an operation that I do frequently. I want to count the occurence of certain string or regex in a file. Is there an easy way to do this? Right now I use search and replace for this purpose. I click replace all with some dummy replacement. The count is shown in the status bar in the bottom. Then I undo the replacement after getting the count.

    Is there an easier way than this? I’m using EmEditor v8 right now. And I want to upgrade to v10 as soon as it is available.

    Thanks,

    Wai Yip

    Hello tungwaiyip,

    In EmEditor Professional v10, there is a new check box called “Count Matches”.

    Also, in v8 or later, you can use the “Word Count” plug-in to count any words that match regular expressions.

    Please let me know if you have further questions. Thanks!
