Word 2010 - char counts done how?

    Question

  • Hello all....

    I have a small issue that sometimes I need to count characters in a keyword phrase...

    For example, in the phrase -  accounting for income taxes -- there are 27 chars...

    other than just counting same by hand over and over for dozens of keywords, is there a way in Word 2010 to select the text and then get a char count of same? tried this many ways but can't find same?

    ???

    If there are other persons who like to know how? Well...

    Press with your RIGHT mouse button the status bar in Word 2010 and enable Word Count. For the mentioned sentence (above) it shows: 'Words: 4'. When you double click it, you see the amount of characters.

    You can also find a button on the REVIEW tab from the Ribbon.
