Hi everybody, I am looking for a software which allows to count words/characters in files other than .doc (mainly powerpoint, excel, quark express, in-design and pdf). I know that there are such tools on the market. Do you know any? Which one would you recommend?
Thanks a lot!

Total Assistant and PractiCount & Invoice Oct 12, 2004

are two other tools. I prefer PractiCount & Invoice 2.4 (Business), it counts words in text boxes and pictures.

There is also a free tool (a macro) for word count in MS Word
This macro counts words in shapes (not embedded ones) and text boxes.

Practicount is the only tool that counts words embedded in shapes.
