Easy way to see number of words in a md file?

Hi forum,

I had no luck in finding an easy way to see the number of words in a markdown file. Is there some trick to get this information provided e.g. in the main inspector?

It’s already visible in the Navigation and Editing bar over the view/edit pane.


Here there are 66 paragraphs, 313 words, and 2004 characters.

Oh wow. That was it - never paid attention to it. Thanks!

You’re welcome. Note there is also a Word Count column that can be shown in the item list in List view.
