ios: option to disable wordcount


Either this option doesn’t currently exist, or it’s very well hidden indeed; if it’s the latter, my apologies.

In short, I’d like the ability to completely hide the word/character count in the header/footer when I’m writing on the iPad. My writing productivity goes up significantly when I can’t see the wordcount, and it’s honestly exceptionally distracting for me. Right now, I’m managing by using only the character count, and/or putting something over that section of the screen, but would it be possible to add an option to just switch off the live count completely?

I’m fine in the desktop version, since in the fullscreen compose mode the bar hides itself, but there doesn’t seem to be such a correspondence in the ios version.

On the whole, I know this is a small thing, but it would greatly improve my writing experience. Surely I can’t be the only one who fixates on the numbers?

Thanks for your time.
