We have used Word Perfect for the past 8 years to do medical transcription, and have always billed by line count. We have installed MS Word 2007 and are trying to convert because of doctor's preference, but are having trouble with the line count portion of the word count tab. The program comes up with more lines than the actual document (shows 137 lines when there are only 102 for example). The problem appears to be that the program counts the spaces between lines as lines. If the text is highlighted line by line with the control key, so that the spaces can be skipped, the line count is accurate, but it is much faster to just count the lines manually. Is there a programming or format fix for this?
