Description zahra 2016-03-03 18:52:05 UTC
hi every one. 
when i tested libreoffice 5.0 and also 5.1 i discover that the word cound and character cound dont work properly in the formats except .odt. 
steps to reproduce. 
1/ open any document in any language no matter one page, 100 page or more. 
libreoffice reports the word count and character count 0! 
expected behaviour,: libreoffice should reports the amount of words and characters correctly. 
this feature worked well in the previous versions, so please set it to regression. 
i tested this on windows and dont have information about other operating systems. 
hope that you fix it. thank you.

Confirmed under Windows 10 x64 running LibreOffice Version: (x64)
Build ID: 89f508ef3ecebd2cfb8e1def0f0ba9a803b88a6d
CPU Threads: 4; OS Version: Windows 6.19; UI Render: default; 
Locale: pt-PT (pt_PT)

This bug affects text files such as DOCX, DOC, RTF and even plain txt. The only format where word and character count works is ODT.

This feature worked perfectly in branch 4.4 and previous, so it is a Regression.
