Description Daniel Morris 2015-10-24 08:54:09 UTC
With .doc documents, the wordcount feature doesn't work. Shows the document as empty.

Work around 1: select all text and word count.
Work around 2: Convert to .odt - and work count works.

Confirmed for 5.0.2, initial loading shows word count / character count as zero. But once you start typing, word count gets updated. So it's only the initial state after loading.
Comment 2 Linus 2015-10-24 14:16:04 UTC
FWIW, it still worked in
