Get Character & Word Count Macro

Another simple macro. This one is for anyone who needs to count characters (e.g. for a tweet or headline) and/or words (e.g. for writers and copywriters). It displays an alert showing the character and word count in the highlighted text when you press Control+C.

This sounds very cool but for some reason for me it is not working in Big Sur and Keyboard Maestro 9.2

Update: I figured out that I had notifications for Keyboard Maestro turned off which is strange because they have always shown in the past. It works now with Display Text Briefly. I needed it turned on for Keyboard Maestro Engine and not Keyboard Maestro in notifications center.

Thanks for making this!
