I newly am on Vista and whatever they have done to word is not an improvement IMO. All of the menu's are changed, tools relocated and parsed out all
over the place, very different than the old Word.
I clicked on the area where the word count is now, but character count is not one of the options... but you guys are all stellar for trying to help me
out with this. I have an 8k limit on the main site (and I really suck at math ) So I keep loading in parts of rthe post and trying to deduct and
add ... arghhh
Word 2007 and they have done away with the Tools menu all together, and it seems character count as well. The link you gave me was for wordcount
and tracking word usage frequency, so did not solve my issue.. darn.. I really didn't think this was going to be such a big deal.
Maybe Semper or Mem could temporarily extend my post count to 10k... I am only stressing about it as I have not dealt with overly long post being an
issue before, but suspect I am may have to completely change my rebuttal statement in order to fit alloted space.
TYVM!! You get a gold star for most ingenious way to solve the problem, as I am pretty sure I have over written myself into a corner and am going to
have to keep editing, rewriting, char. counting.... (and this was supposed to be fun )
And a sincere thanks you all for taking the time and having so much patience. I will now go quietly into my dark night...
