I'm not sure if this is an option I click somewhere or a plugin. I used to have it so that on my info pane it would show the characters in my command line, but when I switched computers it isn't there anymore and I can't remember how I set it up.

Can anyone help me with this?

Woah, that's a really good idea! In like 15 years of MUDding I've never thought to do that lol.

Here. You might have gotten it from this forum thread.

I actually tried that before this post but it didn't seem to work for me.

It worked OK for me. Here it is, turned into a plugin:

Template:saveplugin=Show_Characters_Typed To save and install the Show_Characters_Typed plugin do this:
  1. Copy between the lines below (to the Clipboard)
  2. Open a text editor (such as Notepad) and paste the plugin into it
  3. Save to disk on your PC, preferably in your plugins directory, as Show_Characters_Typed.xml
  4. Go to the MUSHclient File menu -> Plugins
  5. Click "Add"
  6. Choose the file Show_Characters_Typed.xml (which you just saved in step 3) as a plugin
  7. Click "Close"

<!DOCTYPE muclient>
<!-- Saved on Saturday, September 10, 2016, 8:12 AM -->
<!-- MuClient version 5.02 -->

<!-- Plugin "Show_Characters_Typed" generated by Plugin Wizard -->

   purpose="Show how many characters in the command line"
   date_written="2016-09-10 08:11:36"


<!--  Script  -->

function OnPluginCommandChanged()
  -- OnPluginCommandChanged() gets called each time
  -- the command window changes.
  SetStatus("Character count: " .. GetCommand():len())
