All I needed was a neat, minimalist, and graceful tool for
word count in Text Edit - and that is NanoCount2.0 - it's perfect.
I opened a text doc, and NanoCount2.0, and, relaxing after dinner, was contentedly waiting for the document's word count to appear.
Then I realized it HAD appeared...I was waiting for it to begin and the job had been done!
I sat up in my chair and laughed with delight.
I put the alias in dock, after testing it, and that's all there is to resolving an issue that had created a serious block in a writing project I was doing.
When paper and text fonts were uniform, it was easy to make a quick count. Notttannymore. Displays show text windows in varying modes and word count is no standard thing. Add to this, the effect of use of the range of fonts - changes the way word count must be tallied.
In my ratings here, I gave only a "3" value for 'Stability' because I have not owned the proggie long enough to rate it. I hope I remember to come back to this review later and amend it, when time and experience make me a better judge of its Stability.
But so far, I am good to go with NanoCount2.0
Thank you Mr. Gorman
