Miscellaneous collection of Google Apps Scripts.

To add a script to an existing document, go to Tools > Script editor... and paste the relevant Javascript into the new window that appears. Then reload your document.


Ignores table of contents and text [in brackets] when calculating word count. Optionally lets you manually adjust the word count, or have a custom "ignore everything after this point" marker.

You can also directly update a spreadsheet with your word count — useful for writing challenges like NaNoWriMo. (It does assume that your spreadsheet is laid out the same way as mine is, however; I'll make it more generic if folks ask for it.)

Combine all the Javascript files into one big one for ease of pasting into the Google Apps Script editor, if you want: rm WordCount.gs ; cat *.gs > WordCount.gs
