Description rvojta 2008-09-25 16:18:06 UTC
I can't get the number of text in paragraph via API in an easy way. It would be 
nice to have some function which can return the number of text lines in 

I can workaround it, but it's ugly ...

 - put view cursor at paragraph start, get Y position
 - go right
 - if Y position changes, increment number of lines
 - if paragraph changes, end

... but there are many cases where this approach doesn't work. I know that my 
paragraph is on one page only, so, it's enough, but it would be nice to have 
more general and easier way how to count lines.

jsc -> tl: it's a RFE for the writer API
