Hello there. Is there any way to see the count of the lines in a LibreOffice Writer file? I'd like to see it just by clicking on a command, and not by adding the line number on one side or the other of the text. I'm looking for a function similar to the one offered by Microsoft Word. This would be very useful to me, since I'm a journalist and I often have to check how many lines I'm writing. Thanks.

(1) You may use
Menu File → Properties → Statistics → Number of Lines → Update properties_statistics

(2) You can assign a shortcut key via
Menu Tools → Customize → Keyboard
Category: Documents
Function: Properties
Select a shortcut key – click on "Modify""OK" documents_properties

(3) You can add the function to a toolbar (e.g.: "standardbar") via
Menu Tools → Customize → Toolbars → standardbar → Add...
Category: Documents
Commands: Properties
Click on "Add""OK"
