Simple word and character count for TextEdit
Authored by: ObbieZ on May 06, '10 09:19:06AM

Sorry, this didn't work in Leopard on an Al PBG4. The preference described for Script Editor was not there, restarting TextEdit didn't do it. I seem to remember reading how to do this in the past (pre-Leopard), but I've only succeeded in adding scripts to the menu in iTunes.

Perhaps this is a Snow Leopard-only trick? If so, maybe it should be labelled as such.

Actually, the hint works fine in 10.5. What changed from 10.5 to 10.6 is the spot where you enable the Scripts menu item: you'll find it in Applications » AppleScript » AppleScript Utility in 10.5

In 10.6, they merged the functionality of AppleScript Utility directly into the AppleScript Editor.
