Word and character count

Idea

A lot of people have been using evernote for their morning pages/journaling and an important thing in this case is to be able to count how many words, so that we need if it has reached roughly 3 pages. This is something so simple and yet has been a complaint since 2013 and evernote has ignored it.

@Manu Faren, if you are talking about a word/character count that appears on the screen in real time, then I agree this would be helpful to have—at least the option to toggle it on or off. 
 

However, if you open “note details” within the note, you will find the word count and character count.

 I see word and character counts in the Evernote native Windows application. at the bottom of the note editor window. What are you using?

On the Mac I use a menu item called PopClip. It offers a wealth of options for each selected text - among it is sending this text to applications like EN, or to search engines. And as another option it has character and word count. This works in other apps as well, but does the job in each EN note.

There is no reason for me to have this duplicated into the EN app.

Thtat's helpful to know, I didnt know that! Will use it. I've installed another app that does the word count automatically as you select the text.

Yes, that was the solution I found

Glad to help!  I know there are some things that I might prefer to be different with EN, but it really is a great product!
