Highlighted Word Count

The one thing I really miss from Word is the feature where you can highlight part of a document and see the word count of the highlighted portion at the bottom, along with the entire word count. As in this image:

I often participate in word wars, and it’s very helpful to be able to highlight what I’ve just written and get a quick word count instead of c/ping it into an online word counter or into Word.

This seems like it would be a relatively easy and non-cluttery feature to add.

If you highlight something and right click it, it shows the word and character count at the bottom of the context menu. One more mouse click, but it’s there for you if you need it.

Oh wow! I had no idea. Thank you so much!
