I'm not sure the best way to ask this but would it be possible in Notepad++ to find the word count of selected text? I can see the total number of words / characters in my entire document but I need to look at selected text. What's the way to do that?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.
If you don’t want to use the plug in, you could always copy the selected text and paste it into a blank document in another window.
After you get the count, clear it and repeat as often as necessary.

    What did you want, that can be achieved by using a plug-in called 'Textfx', After installed it properly, select the texts/paragraph, that you wanted to count words & then go textfx menu, next textfx tools & select word count. If there is plugin manu notepad++ interface, you can try to install the same through plugin manager.
