How do I activate/view word count?

Hi there
can anyone please answer a couple of basic questions regarding word count.

  1. Can I just add the word count plug in and start using it when not paying a subscription?
  2. If yes to q1, how the heck do I make it active and how can I see it when I highlight a block of text?

Basic questions I know but just not clear to me.

Thanks for any help on this

You should be able to use any plugins for free, however, the current ones are fairly outdated.

Hi Chris,

  1. Yep! Just go to Settings → Plugins and click Add on the right of the desired Plugin.
  2. Type/ inside the Editor and look up the plugin. You can do /plugin, /word, /counter, they would all return It as a result. Click it. A box displaying those stats will appear shortly.
    Note: Trying to use it again, while the old counter is present, may glitch it. Just press Ctrl + Z (undo) to remove the duplicate or use the Six Dot Menu → Delete Rem.

Got it, thanks so much Gabriela


Is this plug-in still available?

No, it needs to be recreated in the new plugin system. There is example code here: Word Count | RemNote
