new option for word count: only counting highlighted text
word count needs to be divided between counting the whole document(current) and counting only the highlighted text(useful). Word count would also be a helpful addition to the right click fast menu, as opposed to less useful features, like bullet and numbering libraries.
This already works. Highlight some text, and the word count appears in the status bar as (for example) "86 of 892 words". Similar for character count, if you have that turned on.
