Character count

Denny 1 month ago in General updated 1 month ago 2

When using Textastic for blog or social media posts in markdown it would be really helpful to be able to get a character count of selected text.

You can find a character count and word count in the file properties. See https://www.textasticapp.com/v10/manual/viewing_editing_files/file_properties.html

But, this is for the whole document, not for the selected text.

Thanks so much for pointing that out!  

I think a setting to change from showing current line/column to a live character/word count of the document or a selection would be very helpful for writers. That said, the existing feature you pointed to is very helpful!
