Thanks radio .... All the links worked OK .... I've had a good read but didn't find a direct reference to word counts .... I'm not anxious to start using another word processor. Wordpad is about as complex as I want to go :huh: It can do niceish presentation for my sort of stuff and when strict ASCII is needed .... that easy as well. .... I'm only just getting used to how most of the stuff at the forum works .... so I want to keep things simple (anybody remember Wordstar .. :woot: .. cringe, cringe)

 

Anyhow .... thanks again to both of you :) .

In 1988 .... Wordstar was the de facto word processing software .... to get a secretarial type of post .... that's what you must be proficient in .... and I reckon the instruction manual was worse than the software :woot: dot codes were embeded .... it was .... dot this .... dot that .... dot the other, plus parameters .... I finished up always using a simple text editor .... but good secretaries could thrash about in it, and weather the storm ............ and then there's RSI. :erm:

 

and, if I remember right .... it could do a word count

radio I eventually decided to download "Jarte" .. :erm: .. I was thinking it was going to be a complicated word processor .. :huh: .. but its not .... It's like a suped up version of wordpad .... several documents open at once .... the last 25 clips are kept .... and it does word count for a file .... pages .... words .... characters. :blink:

 

I'll try it for a while .... and see how things go. It is novel to play with. Thanks again radio :) .
