Description Henrik 2016-04-09 20:35:12 UTC
The most common parts of a document that people writing essays and other assignments with a word limit need to exclude from the word count is the text in footnotes, endnotes and textboxes. Please introduce an easy way to exclude those from the word count, perhaps like MS Office does it with a checkbox in the word count dialog. As in MS Office, the word count in the statusbar should also be affected when the checkbox is ticked in the dialog.

This request is also mentioned in bug 83771, but there it is mentioned together with other features so I thought it best to create a new bug for it.

Thanks Henrik. Better indeed to have a clear separate bug.
