Description jm99 2010-01-26 15:06:34 UTC
After changing a document, WinWord counts only the words in the new text. OO
counts both in the "old" (reviewed) text plus the new version. 
It is not funny to presebt a client with overdone word counts or invoices.
Possible solutions:
1. Count only ready.made text like Winword
2. Give two word (and character) counts for both ready-made text and total
(ready = new text + old text).

Thank you for your work

When tracked changes are invisible (Edit.Changes.Show is switched off), the Word
count feature will also count deleted instead of ignoring this. This does not
happen when tracked changes are shown - then Word count will work as expected.
