Some words do not show in word count. For example “up” or “get”. There is probably more.
Putting in more than 4 instances of a jibberish made-up word does show though. Presumably it assumes it is a name.
Why some common words do not show up? What is the bug? Probably because they are excluded by the various filter categories of SmartEdit. Might need an extra loop to include ALL words: any combo of characters.
It would be great for version 3.32 or later to include a:
SEARCH-BOX Option, in the right column:
So you can search for any word, even if it occurs less than 5 or 4 instances, even if once or none.
Most of the code engine for it is probably there, needs adding an extra interface (search-box text-field & OK button) and some extra code. Probably, I am guessing.
You want to search for a word (or phrase) that occurs only once or twice or maybe not at all ! How to do it in right-column SmartEdit interface? Say search for “xyz”
I create a temporary scratch scene/note in the document
Enter the word I want to search for 5 times on a new line separated by spaces
Each line for a word is easier to scan the tempo scratch scene/note node, so:
xyz xyz xyz xyz xyz
Press top button: RUN ALL CHECKS (for all nodes search choose drop-down option: All Text)
Now xyz shows at least ONCE in the results of SmartEdit.
If there is another instance(s), it will show too as a separate hit(s) in results
If you write xyz 4 times or less in the scratch scene/note, then it will not show if there are no other instances.
I am new to SmartEdit. If there is a way to search in the right column for words that occur 4 times or less, please let me know. I could not see how.
The above method works though, for now. I hope in future versions a generic search textbox field can be added to the right-column. Hopefully after this busy week for the dev, of debugging current major update, sometime in the future.
I also think an extra loop as I said initially to capture all words, will collect all the missing words too.
The way this SmartEdit is working, it will make a lot of things possible. I have other suggestions but will wait for a while.
Thanks for this awesome bonus major mega-feature. Much appreciated
