Word count for all selected notes

Post by Rose Ford »

It would be nice if there was someway to get the word count for all the selected notes besides exporting them as a single file and opening them in another program.

I notice when you select a bunch of notes and then [right click > properties] it only gives you the properties for the note you right clicked. What if instead it gave you details on all the notes you selected?

Such as:
- The oldest created date
- The newest modified date
- The total word count of all the notes
- The total number of attachments on all notes
- And perhaps a tag cloud showing all the tags on the notes.

Thanks for the suggestions. Could you please elaborate more about in which sense having a total word count for the selected notes would be useful in your case?

In my side job I am required to send in a minimum word count for total article text each month.

Also as a hobbyist fiction writer I also write each chapter as it's own note and it would be nice to check the full manuscript word count without having to export it each time.
