I don't know the specific word but to create a better picture, I would like to compare a separate program. PopUp Wisdom and several Quotes app in Android PlayStore.
Both have the same functionality but the Quotes App allows for favoriting apps making it easier to curate custom quotes collection while PopUp Wisdom makes it easier to add custom quotes and remove them in bunches.
Anyway back to the program idea:
Many word count tools calculate the total word count but they are not able to count a certain percentage of the word count and jump to that word paragraph containing the word count.
This makes it hard to gauge where the mid-way point of say a fictional story is.
I mentioned the above bit because finding the portion of the text is only half the story. A writer might also want to bookmark and highlight the portion of the story, add or reduce a few more words and compare the initial half-way point with that of the revised area.
The only way to save a section quickly is through a favorites button. It does not matter if the program stores the favorites so long as it is able to create a new file at the cut off point and letting text comparison software do the rest of the spotting and recombinations of text.
The other bit is that it must be able to quickly insert or delete a text. Again, it's not important if the program can modify the text so long as it can, like a bookmark, set the text editor to open at a particular point where the mouse cursor is located inside the point where the word count is supposed to calculate the text.
This latter also makes it easier to manually type a "tag line" to make the revisions much easier to spot albeit at the risk of messing with the actual word count. UI:
I think the simplest UI without creating a full blown notepad or forcing a specific notepad software plugin is to combine Skwire's Text 2 Folder and Dimension 2 Folder.
Dimension 2 Folder will have a move to text file instead of move to destination. The program will then create the paragraph of the certain percentage into the destination and rename it as 20 percent plus the first word of the paragraph.
Text 2 Folder will have a root folder box and then will display a list of the titles with a note screen that can copy a couple words inside the text file or just a box to comment on why a particular text is being favorited. List headers can then be grouped based on the comments kind of like a tag.
Here's a quick link to Skwire's app page: http://skwire.dcmemb...b/pages/software.php
There are also other interesting interfaces there but I think the above is the quickest without complicating the program.
The program just has to do three things apart from calculating the word count/percentage:
1) Copy the paragraph and create a new file inside a custom folder (renamed to percent name plus first word being the thing that makes it easier to manually type the paragraph in a find box of any text editor)
2) Gather the files inside the custom folder and give it a mechanic to split into different folders (this will be the mechanic to set favorites)
3) Optionally open the root file and jump to the cursor where the percentage point is in case all a writer needs is the jump off point rather than a saved selection of the cut off point.
P.S. I'm still speaking of this as a non-coder so I apologize if my idea is more complicated than it sounds.
