I write using Pages. It’s central to my workflow, so other programs aren’t an option, at least not for writing. I’d like to start logging my qord count each day.
I could do this manually by getting the starting count in my document and then checking the end count at the end of the day, finding the difference, and putting it in a spreadsheet. But hey, maybe I can automate this. Imcould see:
- Directly doing it with pages on ios. —> this seems doubtful. I know iwork added shortcuts, but I don’t think they’re extensive.
- Opening the pages file in another program or with shortcuts, and getting a word count. Do this in morning and evening and log the result
- Somehow do it on macos. I have no mac automation experience though
Any ideas? I’ve made shortcuts, but am not sure what can read .pages files and so am unsure where to start with this or if it’s even possible. Lwt me know if this seems more like a mac thing. Thanks!
