Live word count in status bar?

Post by Strykar » Wed Oct 02, 2019 10:07 am

I searched around the forums and found the current option to display word count is via File -> Properties -> Statistics.
This seems weird for something that needs to be looked up frequently.

How can I show a live word count in the bottom status bar?
Would this also show a word count of currently highlighted text in the document?

Unfortunately, it's not possible to have a live word count in the bottom status bar.

That is indeed rather unfortunate.

Is this a feature that is planned to be implemented?
Is Document Properties -> Statistics the only way to pull word count currently?

What Miguel wrote is not correct. You can drag the item "Count words" from the Customize dialog box to the status bar to have a live word counter.

You are using FreeOffice, but posting in the SoftMaker Office forum. SoftMaker Office has that feature.

I apologize for mistaking the correct section, could you please move this to https://forum.softmaker.com/viewforum.php?f=320 ?
And are you saying the Softmaker Freeoffice version does not have this feature?

Correct. I moved it to the FreeOffice forum.
