Different Word Count Options
In academia the quotations "" are not counted within the total word count of a submission. Word count on Word does count anything you select but it would be amazing if it could do so with the option of selecting what is within or without quotation marks.
For example if my essay is 2000 words, I'd like to know how many words EXCEPT quotes I have written.
Additionally quotes in any academic work can only account for 10% of the total so it would be helpful to know how many words are ONLY in quotation marks.
I would also like to be able to exclude the title page, table of contents, bibliography, footnotes, tables, textboxes, and equations, as well as to tell it how many words to count equations as.

oh my gosh! I wish someone would have thought of this sooner. This would be so helpful to me and probably many other students around the world!
