Hi all,

FWIW, I just [pushed] a change to fix this, along with some other
minor updates to the UI, I hope that's fine with everyone:
> First, since the dialog is now non-modal, the "OK" button does not have
> the desired meaning anymore. "Close" is more appropriate in this case -
> could you please update that?

> Next, I played a bit and run into an issue when working with the Writer
> Comments. Steps to reproduce:
>     1. Prepare a document with text, and comments - set the cursor into
>        the text
>     2. Open the word count dialog -> the word count is correctly
>        displayed
>     3. Click into any note -> the word count dialog disappears
>     4. Press ESC to exit the note
> Expected result: The word count dialog appears and shows the correct
> values. The cursor is back in the document (to continue typing). (Mmh,
> is it possible to show the dialog also when editing the comments?)
> Current result: The word count dialog appears, but shows no numbers. The
> cursor is not in the document. (To me, it seems the Word Count dialog
> gets the focus instead of the document).

Can reliably reproduce with my as-of-now very current build. Have you
opened a bug for that already, Christoph?
