    JSX for word count, including tables

    ryan.kiefer

      Hi folks,

       

      I've tried two different scripts (found on this site) to attempt to get the word count out of an entire book, including all stories, tables, and captions.

       

      The first:

       

      alert("There are "+ app.documents[0].stories.everyItem().words.length +" words in the active document.")

       

      Then this one, which doesn't count numbers and symbols, which I like:

       

      app.findGrepPreferences = null;

      app.findGrepPreferences.findWhat = "[\\u\\l][-\\u\\l]+";

      found = app.documents[0].findGrep ();

      alert ("There are " + found.length + " words in this document.")

       

      The difficulty is that neither of them include words in tables. Is there a way to force this in this script?
