I can confirm that this app does not alter any document content. Word will prompt you to save a document after you go into the Word Count dialog itself. This behaviour is therefore, a bug in Word itself.

I agree with Push and I have just one thing. I was testing it and when I open a word doc. and I want to check the word count it will check it but when I close the word doc. it asks me if I want to save the changes to the word doc. when I did not make any changes, so my concern is this script making changes to the word document without us knowing?

I just love this script. I always need to know the word count and this is just so much easier than going to the menu... Thanks for making the hotkey redefinable.
