Download and Installation

Download and install the plugin using the Plugin Manager using the URL given above. Refer to Plugins on how to install plugins manually.

The functionality of this plugin can also be installed as a GreaseMonkey user script in Firefox and Chrome. See for details.



The plugin adds a new picker to the toolbar which provides the following functions.

Sort Ascending

Selected text is sorted line by line in ascending order. Use this to sort tables or lists. No, this does not let you sort a table by the second column or any other sophisticated thing. It just sorts text lines alphabetically.

Sort Descending

Same as above but reversed

Add Indention

Selected lines are indented by two spaces. Nice to quickly change the level of a bunch of list items.

Remove Indention

Same as above but removes two spaces.

Word Count

This basically implements the features of wordcounter into an on-demand counter. It counts characters and words of the total page, the currently edited section (if any) and the selected text (if any).

Might not always be 100% correct, but should be good enough.

More features

Might come some day. Earlier if you send patches. Here are a few ideas:
