how can i do

one way


The Text box has 5 words.

I don't want this, I want to print how many times the word I specify appears.

Start a dictionary with words as keys and their counts as values, initially 0.

Loop through all your text word by word, setting
value(word) to value(word) + 1

What about trying the solution mentioned earlier?
You can find the split block in the text drawer and list blocks in the list drawer
