Word Count[SOLVED]

Post by vikingson » Sun Nov 12, 2017 5:37 am

I thought I read something about word count being in the 2018 version. For some reason I can't figure out how to add word count to Textmaker. There is a way to add it to the bottom of the page, right?
Thanks.

Choose File | Customize | Customize ribbon. Find the element "Count words" (you can type in parts of the name in the edit field). When you see the element in the left listbox, use the mouse to drag this icon to the status bar.

There are also other such counters, such as characters or keystrokes.

Maybe I'm overlooking something, but I don't see a customize option under file on Textmaker. Under Tools there is a Customize option, but I can't make sense of how I would customize the ribbon from there. I'm using the Classic Menu and Toolbars if that makes a difference.
Edit: I finally got this to work, but not in the classic menu. Thanks!

With classic menus:

1. Tools > Customize
2. Type "count", and you see all commands about counting.
3. Drag the one you want with the mouse to the status bar.

Thank you!
Now that I've tried the newer menu it is growing on me :)
