Word Count LaunchBar Action
Easily Count the selected text
Sometimes I need a way to count a selected group of text. Usually, it's to see if it's long enough for a particular field.
If it was on a website, I would copy that text into BBEdit or another text editor. Then I would look at the status bar to see the number of words or length of the copied text.
There has to be a better way,
Using the Action
Now when I need to get the information, I just follow these steps.
- Select the text
- Use the 'Instant Send' keyboard short cut
- Click Tab
- Then type in 'Word' and then click return.
I get instant info on my selected text.
