Dear Keith,

It was obvious what you were saying.

This may explain things, there are two main streams of TeXWorks, as you already know - that which comes with MiKTeX, and also the primary direct source which is looked after by Stefan Löfer and team.

They can be different at times as the MiKTeX maintainers make some tweaks as they see fit.

I do recall the count feature you mentioned, but in the main stream from the source developers:


I am using an earlier version, but you could look at trying the current main release and see if it still has the feature.

Kind regards,
