Is there any word count function on text edit. What's the easiest way for me to run a word count?
Any info would be greatly appreciated!

You can use the 'Statistics?' service in the Services option of the TextEdit menu. This is available to all cocoa applications and therefor in TextEdit as well.
Hope this helps.

can't find the statistics option. Are you sure it's on all versions of text edit?

ooops, my mistake. Statistics is part of a nice freeware service 'WordService' which you can get here:
It also adds some other nice text services which I always find very useful.
