Bring back the live word count feature for Mac Word 2016
On Word 2011 at the bottom you could see the word count feature up until the cursor. This feature has now been removed and wastes a lot of time for anyone who needs to stick to tight word limits and needs to keep this under close surveillance, e.g. editors, students writing assignments, scientists writing journal articles, etc.
A thread here https://word.uservoice.com/forums/304942-word-for-mac/suggestions/9220053-word-count suggested you were reviewing the suggestion. 18 months has passed and nothing. I'm switching back to Word 2011 and sticking to it.

There were so many things about 2011 that were simply: better.
