Wordcounter for Google Docs
A real-time word count and milestone markers in Google Docs.
PH Page >
I've been writing a lot in Google Docs, and wanted a real-time word count and milestone markers. So I built a little extension. Maybe you'll find it useful too!
@shl looks sweet mate! Great job! 👌
@shl really useful!
Top stuff, much needed. Thank you!
Feature request: Flesch-Kincaid scoring. Being able to tell on the fly if my word length / sentence length / grade level is over the head of my reader would be super helpful.
Feature request - ability to add milestone markers at other intervals (100, 200, 300 words) for shorter content pieces.
@vmarks I'll look into adding this!
@vmarks @shl please also add character counter!
Very effective and needed tool.
Nice work Sahil! I have literally copy & pasted things from a Google Doc to a different platform just to get a word count 😅
@daviswbaer i can totally relate to that part.
@daviswbaer @yogitakhatri You can select all the content in google docs with Ctrl+A and then can perform a word tally by using Ctrl+Shift+C. Not saying that the tool is not handy. It definitely is!!
@yogitakhatri @nishashah11 Thanks! https://media1.giphy.com/media/3og0IMJcSI8p6hYQXS/giphy.gif
@daviswbaer Happy to help!
@nishashah11 Thnx a lot, that is a big help.!
I always felt the urge of having some tool to facilitate this feature in google docs. Glad to see this.
Very nice and simple Sahil! Maybe giving the option to switch it to dissenting would be pretty cool :) And maybe it could auto switch when it hits 0 or something like that.
I’m sure a simple text highlight will give this information to you. But in a world where character counts matter for a variety of reasons, this is very helpful little tool. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks for making using google docs easy for so many people. Loved the Idea.
Can it also do character count? I have a lot of things that I have to write that have character limits and think that be a great add on. Most of mine are characters including spaces.
