Hi all,

I'm trying to get the word count for an Acrobat Reader document. PractiCount can do that, but the thing is that I need to count words for half of the document, not the whole thing.

I have not been able to split the document or to modify the number of pages in any way. Do I need any specific software or would it be possible for me to do it directly from Acrobat Reader?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Sincerely,

Andrés

Perhaps there is a more sofisticated method, but I usually select/copy the text, paste it into Word and do the usual Word Count.

Hi, Andrés. Having no wordcount software, I proceed the same way!
Or I go to SAVE AS and save the document as .rtf, which is easier. I have the full version not the reader so I don't know whether you can do that.
Good luck.

Thanks Jun 23, 2003

I have tried different options; for some reason, Acrobat does not recognize text in this particular document. Therefore, I have not been able to select the test or to save the .pdf file as .rtf.

I did not know about the .pdf word count program; will take a look at it.

Regarding PractiCount, I do have it, and will use it (after I get the Editor and am able to split the document; the option I find most suitableicon_smile.gif.

Again, thank you very much for your help.

Best regards,

Andrés
