Making a text file manually

To make a text file open a text editor (e.g., Notepad in Windows or TextEdit in Mac).

Manually type or paste some text into the main window and save.

Saving from a word processor like Microsoft Word may not give a “clean” output, that is, some of the letters or punctuation may not render as plain text. This may affect the count and/or searchability of the resulting text.
