Selection Word Count in Writely
November 14, 2006
Quick note: I’ve been playing around with Writely for a while, and recently decided to use it to write out one of my midterms. Everything’s working great, with the exception of a word count per selection – which is necessary when you have per-answer word count limits. Here’s a bookmarklet that will do per-selection word count (an estimate, but not a bad one)–
Copy paste into a bookmark’s location field (only tested in Firefox; Writely isn’t quite there yet for Opera) and invoke whenever needed. Many thanks to Ben Newman for help with getting text selection.
