Getting information on the active document

Using the View -> Sumary... command, or double clicking the second part of the Status Bar, brings up a message box with various counts about current document, plus additional information.


Specifically, the message box will show:

  • The fully qualified file path for the active document;
  • its creation date;
  • its last modiified date;
  • the byte count for the file;
  • The number of non blank characters;
  • the number of characters (tabs count for 1 character each)
  • the word count;
  • the line count;
  • the number of selected characters and bytes, as well as the nuber of ranges (can be above 1 if multiple selection is enabled).

The status bar only shows line and byte counts. The title bar may show the fcomplete file path depending on the option chosen.
