I've looked in the Apple Dashboard Widgets Calculate & Convert category but haven't been able to find a Character Counter Widget.

When I need to know how many characters there are in something I'm writing, I go to my web browsers bookmark of a free Online Text Formatter and Character Counter.

I would much rather press F12 and have a Character Counter Widget available to use instantly.

Do you know if any are available? Smile

That's a new one on me, but it would be easy enough to write. All you would need to do is have something load the inner text into a variable and run a count over it.

I have absolutely no idea how to do that.

Do you?

Can you?

Dashboard Widgets member 'meowza' has found a Character Counter Widget at Apple's Widget site in the Calculate & Convert category Smile

Somehow I missed it when I searched that category initially before posting the two threads [inquiry & request] here at DW Confused I must of been tired and selectively looking through the list for the exact title 'Character Counter'.

For anyone else who would like it (it works great and also looks decent) you can download it here.
