HTML Editor | Word Count

Modified on: 2017-07-26 12:17:11 +0200

If you are copying your text from a word processing application such as Microsoft Word, you will find that the word count differs from the Online Campus' online text editor's (among other text editor application word counts). This occurs because of the difference in formatting across the applications. 

If you have included a hyperlink or anything other than plain text in your document, please note that different text editors read content in different ways. Please attempt to clear the formatting by clicking on the "Tx" (clear formatting) button on the text editor.


Alternatively, please copy your text from Microsoft Word into a application such as Windows Notepad which removes text formatting.
