Dear all,

 

I would like to ask you if there is any chance how to find out characters count excluding spaces in InDesign. The characters count under Window - Information provides info about counting with spaces.

I know that MS Word can count characters with and without spaces. Can I find it out in ID as well?

 

Thank you for your help,

 

Tom

You could use the Find/Change dialog for this. In the Grep tab use the following Find What ([^\s]) Change To $1 And then choose "Change All", it will prompt you the no of replacements made and that is the count of non space characters. -Manan

Dear Manan,

 

Thank you very much for your reply. It works great, you saved lots of my time copying from ID to MS Word.
