Description netce 2007-06-28 00:18:53 UTC
File | Properties | Statistics includes a number of useful statistics, but does
not respect selection.

Tools | Word Count respects selection but provides only word and character counts.

Please unify these tools so that the same statistics found in File Properties
will respect current selection as in Word Count.

I confirm this difference, but honestly I don't see much reason to have this
unification. Word Count and Statistics always match in total words and
characters, and I don't see any need to include selection counts in the
Properties Statistics.
Just my opinion.... sorry if it goes against others!

I'll offer our use case. We use Writer to edit course material that will be
published in print. Most of our material arrives from third-party authors, so we
usually don't have complete control of the document structure until after we
have purchased the material. While evaluating their submissions, we often have a
need to know line and paragraph counts in addition to word counts for purposes
of estimating column lengths and learner credit hours. As submitted course
material often includes outlines, abstracts, annotations, editorial comments,
bibliographies, references, and so forth which we do not wish to include in
these counts, we are normally interested in statistics of subsets of the file
rather than the entire file.

And please insert into the statistical table the number of the space occurrence 
like in M$ Word.

Note: in the currently used letter count statistic isn't correct (or the label 
isn't correct) because the space has been added to the full letter count.
