Description Corey Mwamba 2018-11-21 12:42:50 UTC
I am wondering if it is possible to create an option when editing Styles to exclude a style from word count. This option (much like the option to exclude a style from line numbering) would be a simple tick box with the text "Exclude this style from word count". This would be really useful for footnotes, endnotes, bibliographies, TOC, indexes, and draft text styles.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select style and go to "Edit Style"
2. Go to "Outline and Numbering" tab
3. Select new option "Exclude this style from word count"

Actual Results:

Expected Results:
The word count is updated.

Reproducible: Always
