    Hey New and Veteran Hubbers,

    I was just editing a hub that I am presently working on, getting ready to publish after making minor adjustments.

    However, I discovered a NEW feature.

    Word Count on the TOP of each Text Capsule.

    A very nice addition for people who don't write their hubs outside of Hubpages.

    Thank you staff. smile big_smile

    I'm writing a Hub right now, but don't see the w/c.

    'At the top of each text capsule' ... no - I can't see it ...

      Camlo, it should be in the framing of the capsule in the upper left hand corner. smile

        No, no matter how hard I look. I can't really think of any logical reason why you should have it and I don't. Hmmm - strange.

              I see you posted this 17 hours ago, and you may have it now, but I have it right now and I'm using Chrome.

              Hope you get it soon!

                Thank you, Garrett and Jason! Well, I just took a look, and it seems I haven't got it yet.

                If it's a Javascript caching issue, I guess I should get it eventually.

                Thanks again!

              It's probably a Javascript caching issue.

    Yes! This is a GREAT feature! I sometimes write hubs in word and transfer them, but there are times I simply write them directly on HP. I love having a word count on top of each capsule!

    Wow!  I love the new feature.  So much easier to keep track of the number of words for Amazon products, not that I write many product hubs.  But it's nice to have the word count feature.  Thanks HP!  I haven't seen it yet.

    Thanks for the much awaited feature HP.
    I literally have to count my words, because i write on Microsoft office one note, before transferring to the capsule.

    I put up a new hub today. I could not see the word count for capsules at any point during the creation/editing process.
