I need something that can count with Word Wrap activated though. I need
to see the entire line as I'm working on it in the text editor/word
processor. In Wordpad there doesn't seem to be any character or column
count. I tried Open Office Swriter and couldn't get that to count but I'm
no expert in that either so maybe there is a hidden feature that I'm
unaware of. With MS Word 2007 it counts words, not characters unless
there is a hidden feature there too.
In Open Office Writer (I have version 3.1) Tools >> Word Count this
will give you both a count of the number of words and the number of

I found a marvelous little text program called Jarte. Highly recommended. Have been using it for several days and am discovering things all the time. Its very similar to Wordpad and is designed as an enhanced version of it. And am using Microsoft Word 2007 more too. Its so bloody complex yet its showing its usefulness as well. Between the 2 of them its much better now. I use Open Office's Swriter from time to time but found it had problems porting stuff over to Wordpad and Word. Who needs that kind of non-standard communication hassles? That should be the first order of priority in its design. If your work can't be seen as it was created its useless. Otherwise OO Swriter is great and seems like a great stab at word processing. It should be called Swriter Island cause that's where you'll be if you use it. :)
