Notion has a word count feature that shows you the total number of words on a page.
Unfortunately, the tool doesn’t tell you how many words you’ve highlighted. To see this, you’ll either need to install a Chrome Extension like Word Counter Plus or copy and paste the text into a word-processor like Google Docs or Microsoft Word.
Despite this limitation, Notion’s built-in word counter still has its uses — if you’re writing an assignment or blog post, or maybe you have set yourself a goal of writing a certain amount of words per day, for example.
How to View Word Count in Notion
- Open a Page in Notion.
- Tap the three horizontal dots (. . .) in the top-right corner.
- Scroll down to the bottom of the list to view the word count.
