Description Adam Golański 2012-12-09 15:25:16 UTC
Problem description: 

In New HTML Document one cannot check number of words in text, either directly typed or pasted into document. It worked in OpenOffice.org few years ago.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create New HTML Document
2. Select Tools | Word counter
3. Click Word Counter without any effect.

Current behavior:

Nothing happens

Expected behavior:

Clicking opens a window with statistics, like in normal text document.

NOT confirmed in Version (Build ID: 6d4a55bf38a1c470c49f904dbbddf94eb2f6154)

The popup screen with stats is ok.
Comment 2 Stefan Knorr (astron) 2012-12-19 08:31:19 UTC
Reproducible on LibreOffice 3.5:build-403 (openSUSE 12.2).

Not reproducible on 4.0 beta 1 (Windows 8).
Not reproducible on master ( (Build ID: 3b87d3dd507cd48286160e62383f48e2f70f006) (Linux, self-built).

=> therefore closing as WORKSFORME (now).
