It’s easy to insert a field showing the number of words in a document. However, that figure includes all words, including headers, etc.
I have a short story template, and I’d like it to display the number of words in the story, minus the baseline words in the template, minus the address, title, etc. The titles will be variable length, but for simplicity here, I’d like a field that shows the result of the formula: LO # of words in document minus 152 (e.g., =Words - 152).
I see the way to enter a formula in a field, but I don’t know how to refer to the # of words.
Replies to a couple of similar queries seem to suggest this is not possible, but they’re not definitive, and that seems a strange result.
