How do I get a word count for a PDF doc or for a selected passage?
Copy link to clipboard
Select text, copy into Word, use Word's Properties.
That's the only way? Not so convenient with a long doc. Oh well. Thanks.
It can be done within Acrobat, but it requires a script. And it's more complicate with a passage. Basically that can't be done directly. You'll need to first do something like highlight the text using the Highlight commenting tool before a script could count the number of words in it.
You could export to Word if it's many pages.
Thank you all--this is very helpful.
