What is the expected behavior?
Status bar should show word count and selected text word count, right besides the page number as in MS Office and every other Office application.
See: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/show-word-count-3c9e6a11-a04d-43b4-977c-563a0e0d5da3#ID0EAACAAA=Newer_versions

I just wanted to mention that this is a critical feature for translators, editors and proofreaders, as word counting is the first step for stipulating the price for a document and the correct size for specific document elements.
The absence of this feature makes it impossible to fully implement OnlyOffice in translation agencies, so it would be truly appreciated if this was implemented.

I also came here looking for this. I saw that this was put into #40224 in the internal issue tracker back in January. Has there been any progress you can report on this?

@uncertainquark, the issue of placing information on the number of words in the status bar is still being discussed with our team.

Adding a +1 to this - this is really essential for use in an education context, too.

Having the ability to select a part of a document and get the word count for that part is a basic feature requirement for a word processor used in any educational setting.

Adding a +1 to this - this is really essential for authors. Both word and character counts in status bar.
