Description vulcain 2013-01-28 09:32:03 UTC
Since LibreOffice 3.6, we could see the number of the word in status bar.

But, it could be fine if we could have the number of characters in the same place.

In LibreOffice 3.6's status bar: 
| Page 1/1 | Words : 42 |  Default Style | Language | ... 

Expected status bar:
| Page 1/1 | Words(characters) : 42(1024) |  Default Style | Language | ...

Thanks for reporting!

This is an enhancement request, so I mark it as such. Can't find any duplicates either.

It has been pushed to "master":

I reckon that with the proposed change and the fix, the status bar will be filled with too much text after translating it.
