Exclude certain words from an SDLX word count?

Hi all,

Thanks for reading.

I was wondering if it's possible to specify certain words/strings/a set of characters (e.g. [X]) in SDLX that will be excluded from the word count of multiple files.

Is this possible, and if so, how can it be done?

Thanks again -
