OpenOffice Writer: how to have it count spaces too?


Hi!

I use OpenOffice Writer and its function "Word count". But this function counts only signs but not the spaces. I work as a journalist and get paid by counting all signs spaces included. Is there any possiblity to configure this function to have count everything inclusiv spaces?

thanks.

My OOo (2.2.1) counts words AND characters, and characters include spaces (I've checked that). Which version are you using?

Cool How to calculate document statistics

If you'd like to see this feature of OpenOffice.org, look at Plan-B "How to calculate text document statistics (word count, image count)."

Nice demo. I actually already know how to use the statistics function. the problem for me is to have it calculate all signs including spaces. I'll upgrade my OpenOffice, and see how it goes.
