in Blogging, DiY

Mavericks is the latest OS from Apple and most of you must have upgraded by now. Word Count is really important especially for creative writers and search engine professionals. For instance, if you are going to write an article having 350, 500 to 1000 words respectively, you can use Microsoft Word App, right!

But what if you don’t?

There are other writers on mac who prefer its default text application called TextEdit because it’s tiny and fast. Alternately, you can also try Evernote to organize your text content including the word count.

But why to use simple text format?

Because, when you paste these text on any WYSIWYG editor such as WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr, only the destination formatting (fonts, color, etc.) would be retained before publishing. This is also preferable by most of the web designers who write blog posts in html format. So let’s create one for Mavericks…

Create AppleScript to Show Word Count in TextEdit, Mavericks

DiY: Step 1

Open Applications → Utilities → AppleScript Editor

DiY: Step 3

Go to your OS X Mavericks Disk → Library → Scripts Folder and create a new folder called “TextEdit Scripts”. This disk has to be your default os disk or else it won’t work. You need this reference in Step 6, let’s continue.

That’s it.

Optional: By adding a “Tag” name you can access it quicker on OS X Mavericks.

DiY: Step 8 or Testing

Open TextEdit app and paste some random text just to test.
Now Select AppleScript Editor’s icon from your apple menubar (located in the upper right corner). Look for TextEdit Scripts folder and click Word Count.
