Word count of selected text. (Feature available in MS Word )



In Evernote, in Note info we will have the word count of the Note.

But if we want to know number of words of particular topic within a note, it is not possible.

In MS Word, when we select a text (say selected 4 lines of text in a document ), then number of words selected will be displayed in left side bottom.

This feature is helpful, when we have to follow word limits.  We cannot create a new Note for every topic.

Within a note I have 10 - 12 topics, I cannot exceed 500 words for a topic. 

I request evernote to introduce this feature word count of selected text.

This has been requested before, and most likely it will not be introduced.

We as other users can only think about reasons why it was not introduced: It is a feature for a narrow use case, it is a feature available in other apps, and introducing it would bloat the editor. This may be some of the reasons why it was never followed up.

On the Mac I use the PopClip menu bar helper.  It has several options, among them a character and word count. This works everywhere, not only in EN.
