Word Count In Draft

    Is it possible to be able to see the word count when previewing the hub unpublished, or another way to do so before publishing.

    I know that after the results have been gathered, the word count is listed in the stats. It would be helpful though to have an idea before publishing.

    When viewing the hub (not in Edit mode, but you do need to be logged into your account) click on Stats at the top, and then Hub Metrics.

    It'll give you a Word Count.

    You can do that to an unpublished hub as well.

    If I've not yet started filling Capsules with content and I've just got my writing in a Text document, I use a couple of webpages I have uploaded on one of my websites for a quick Word Count and a Character Count.

    The Character Count is handy if you're putting in a custom summary for your hub, because (while it doesn't say it) it needs to be no more than 500 characters.
