Yes, I know I can copy and paste into Word and check word count but that's even more time consuming.
I often write my article in Word to start with...then edit, re-arrange, save, go back later with fresh eyes...etc...then simply paste the sections into the capsules, and I'm done, AND I can have as many ongoing word counts as I like.

This is really not a big deal, but I am curious why there are two separate word counts for hubs. I am editing a hub and the new feature shows a word count of 1287. When I click on "done editing"...
