Word count feature in Publisher please

Recommended Posts

I would like to add my voice to those calling for a word count feature. Once my books are laid out I will still spend time on them, and my even add or delete sections. So there is always a need to generate fresh word counts.

Working with other people, especially when quoting for audiobook production, makes it essential to have an accurate word count. 

Please add this feature.

There is yet another thread about this.

Here is my suggestion for a workaround (Macs only):

For those on a Mac: If you install the PopClip app (menu bar helper, costs a few bucks), you get a character and word count feature for selected text, among other useful pop-up-menu functions.

Not as good as counting inside of the Publisher app could do, but it does the job as a workaround.
