Counting methods Aug 15, 2004

It depends on the flowchart program you are using, in many cases you may copy the content into a text file and then count the words/characters.
As a rule I add some time charge, since flowcharts often need to be treated differently from a regular text flow.

Text boxes? Aug 17, 2004

I guess you mean text boxes in Word.

The way I use to count the text boxes content:
1) put the cursor inside the text box
2) press Ctrl + A (= select all)
3) use the Word count (for me Alt + X, R; for you something else perhaps)

Still a laborious method, but feasible.
