    UPDATE on 'Live Word Count issue below. I just cancelled my subscription, which was due for payment over the next day or two. Why did Microsoft remove a wonderful working feature of Word? And they just keep ignoring requests to bring it back! Bring back live word count and I'll happily sign up to purchase Microsoft Office again. Again, not being picky about the feature. It was terrific when deep in the work flow you didn't need to pause and highlight to know that say your word count wasn't exceeding your commisson criteria.

    I've just started a free month's trial with Word 2016 (from Word 2007) and this is a deal-breaker issue for me.
    I'm not being picky, in my editing work I need the actual running word count. Selecting text is all very well but not a solution for an editor's daily workload. Going by the date-line here, I'm not holding my breath, so I might not actually purchase the product.
