I am a freelance writer and I frequently use Pages to draft my articles. I appreciate having the word count on the bottom of the document because I am often paid by the word. Periodically, I'll see how many words I've written, break out my calculator, and see how much money I've made for a bit of motivation.
However, I think it'd be really nice to have a little box next to word count that said how much money I've made so far. The function would get the current word count, I would pass it the constant of 'rate of pay per word,' and it would calculate how much I've made as I type.
I want to set the rate of pay per word in a drop-down or something and have the "money made" display next to the word count box.
I have some programming experience but I've never used Applescript or Automator. Can someone get me started with this? Thanks!
