Hello everybody:

I need to count words in a PDF file, but I don\'t know how to do it. Sorry if this topic has aleady been dealt with previously, but I searched all proz and I found nothing related to this topic.

I\'ve got Acrobat Reader 5.0 but it seems it doesn\'t count words, does it??

Please, could anyone help me??

Thanks a lot in advance.

Best wishes,

Take a look at the lower left portion of the ProZ page Feb 10, 2003

You will find a Search box there. I wrote \"pdf word count\" in it, and it gave me the link to the forum you mention.

It is:

Enjoy your work, as I do mine!
