Re: reporting word number automatically.


And as a side note, ALT+R,W, suggested by Ms. Byrne, and CTRL+SHIFT+G, suggested by Mr. Moxey, both bring up the same Word Count dialog.

The difference is the first throws focus to the review ribbon, and activates the Word Count option, and once you exit the Word Count dialog the Review Ribbon is what's still active.  The second just invokes the Word Count dialog no matter what ribbon happens to be on display and doesn't change it.  When you close afer CTRL+SHIFT+G whatever ribbon had been active before hitting that command remains active.  Using either still leaves your insertion point in the document wherever it had been immediately prior to your having invoked the dialog.
