    JSX for word count, including tables

    ryan.kiefer Level 1

      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?
