Word count

Hi, I am new to Anytype although an established user of linked notes, second brain etc (mainly Obsidian). Excuse a basic question, but how do I find the word count? I can’t see a preference for it or a margin pop-up. As a writer and speaker it’s kind of the first lever you look for in a new environment…

Hey @IanGreig,
Welcome to the forum.

There is no such feature currently but there is a feature request including this. Have a look here:


I would suggest a simple w:nnn c:nnn bottom right of the window frame. A ‘Statistics’ … menu item would do the job but I think it is a clumsier solution.

In the same way that no aircraft would lack an altimeter, writing and notes app routinely include this because it’s vital!
