    Hi all.

    I've been hunting all over the TextEdit application for a page count feature, to go along with the 'Wrap to Page' function. I'm one of those people who really need their word counts, and unfortunately Microsoft Word mauls all fonts beyond reasonable compromise. ^ ^' Is there any page count function on TextEdit, or a way to add one?

    Use TextWrangler instead. More advanced/functional than TextEdit with word count available at a click.

    Devon WordService is small, free, and very useful (it's at the bottom of linked page)
