Statistics report

In the statistics report what mean: lines (hard) and lines(soft)?

“Hard” lines include only those ended by a carriage return. So this number is approximately equal to the number of paragraphs. “Hard” lines also matter to poets.

“Soft” lines includes all lines, both those ended by a carriage return and those where the line above just wrapped to the next. So “soft” lines would be an estimate of how much space the printed manuscript would require.
