Word count in paragraph - Open Office,


Hey,

Does anyone know if there is a way to do a word count in Open Office 1.0.[2|3] on a paragraph, rather than on the whole document. Ideally it may just be a selected part of the text.

Thanks in advance...

Heh, sorry, couldn't resist

I don't think there is any way to do that... though I could be mistaken.

yeah I am not too hopeful but it is the only negative in an otherwise fairly seamless transition from M$_Office to Open Office for my wife, maybe I will suggest it to the developers for an upcoming release.

There is no word count per se just a statistics page that gives an overall word count

yes, it does.

I'm not sure how advanced this compatibility needs to be (or is), but you can see if it fits your needs.
