The AnyCount word count tool is able to optionally ignore texts in identical headers/footers and hidden text.

 

AnyCount and MS Word

As a rule, AnyCount count results are similar to those provided by MS Word statistics feature, but sometimes there can be differences. The reasons for the difference are the following:

  • AnyCount optionally counts headers, footers, text boxes, shapes, embedded and linked objects, comments, and notes, whereas MS Word up to version 2003 does not. MS Word 2007 counts text boxes, shapes, footnotes, and endnotes, which means that you may get different results by counting the same file in MS Word 2003 and MS Word 2007.
  • However, AnyCount does not count text format elements (e. g. list bullets), because they represent the result of formatting only, and MS Word does.

For example, let’s select the DOCX file for the word count:

  • comments

After that you can:

  • view count results on the screen;
  • print count results;
