live word count: option to always include footnotes


I realise that the live word count does not include footnotes by default for speed reasons and they can be included by checking the “include footnotes” box. However, that setting is forgotten when closing a document. Would it be possible to have an option to always include the footnotes in the live word count, that is remembered after closing and reopening?


You are referring to the pop-over when clicking on the statistics text in the footer bar? That doesn’t make any difference for the live word count, as mentioned right below the checkbox, it only changes the numbers you see in the list above, in that very same pop-over and that is it. The setting is used nowhere else.
