Word count for selected text (without footnotes)

Hi there,
Is it possible to get a word count for selected text to exclude footnotes, comments etc., i.e. just the text highlighted?
Many thanks,

There is not a way to do this at the moment, but we have plans to refine the word count features in the future. Currently you can use Project Statistics to get the word count for the selected document without comments or footnotes, but not for just a partial selection within the text. You could copy the selected text using Edit > Copy Special > Copy without Comments and Footnotes and then paste that to get the word count, but that’s probably a little more work than you were after.

okay, thank you
