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!
Lu

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.

http://www.practiline.com/

There is also a free tool (a macro) for word count in MS Word
http://www.shaunakelly.com/word/CompleteWordCount/
This macro counts words in shapes (not embedded ones) and text boxes.

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