Simple word and character count for TextEdit
Authored by: Stormchild on May 06, '10 04:56:30PM

A better solution is to grab WordService, a free OS X service that works in any app. The included 'Statistics' service gives you word/character counts, and it comes with a bunch of other useful text manipulation services as well.

Simple word and character count for TextEdit
Authored by: osxpounder on May 18, '10 01:35:16PM

I use that WordService (on Leopard) and love it. It will convert case of selected text in many apps, too (but not Firefox, sorry to say).

I assigned shortcut keys for lowercase, all caps, initial caps of words, and initial caps of sentences. Works great in TextEdit.
