    Re: word count issue in MAC

    Hi wolf11th,
     
    It works fine for me. I test on
     
    "Mac OS X version 10.43" with firefox 3.6.10
     
    "Windows vista" with firefox 3.6.10, IE 8, google chrome 7.0.517.41 and safari 5.0.2.
     
    Test page is http://www.cutesoft.net/example/general.aspx , it all show the same count.
     
    What browser/version and Mac/version you are using?  Can you try on our demo http://www.cutesoft.net/example/general.aspx too?
     
    Keep me posted. 
     
    Regards,

    thx Ken
     
    Yes, I can easily reproduce the issue by following text:
     
    While the program will cover interpretation of standards, developing interview questions and skills the intent of this activity is to evaluate your competencies in the following areas-
    • timeliness of return of the activity,
    • writing skills and
    • your current understanding of the EQuIP standards, criteria, elements and ratings.
     
     
    When I use paste as plaint text. In windows it shows 337 characters. But in MAC it displays 329. As our program will only allow users to input 1000 chars, it is really important for us to make sure the character count is correct.
     
     
    My mac os is v10.6.4. web browser : Firefox 3.6.8; Safari 5.0.2

    Re: word count issue in MAC

    Hi,
     
    I think that because the linebreak is diffence for Windows and MAC
     
    Windows use \r\n , and MAC use \n
     
    Currently we do not plan to make the word count to be same.
     
     Otherwise it may cause bugs for customers.
     
    Regards,
    Terry

    Re: word count issue in MAC

    Hi there,
    that's ok
    alternatively, is there any way to read the value of the "characters:XXX" from the right bottom corner by javascript? at least it makes my caculation same as yours although yours is not right in MAC.
