I have noticed a difference in word count between the analyses sent by an agency and my own analyses for PPTX files. The word counts provided by the agency are always lower than my own, and I have figured out that this is because the agency's analyses do not count file paths that are included in PowerPoint presentations (such file paths are not visible in the slides or notes; they seem to be related to images that are copied into the presentations). The agency and I are both using Studio 2011. How can I configure Studio to stop counting file paths so that my word counts will come out the same as the agency's?

Thanks in advance,
