Line count of selected text

In the Statistics section of the Properties menu (File->Properties->Statistics) I can see the line count for the enitre document. It would be nice and quite useful to see the line count of a text selection in the Word Count tool (the one that can be accessed by clicking on the word count displayed on the status bar at the bottom).

If I’m not wrong this feature is available in MS Word and I have a particular use case where I need it. It seems to me that at the moment there is no way to get this kind of line count in LO Writer, am I correct? I think it could be a useful feature to have and it shouldn’t be so hard to implement.

Just fill an enhancement in our bugzilla
