Can you hide completely the character/word/segment count? (Studio 2015)

No, but... Sep 8, 2017

You can't really hide it, but you can select whether to show a count, percentage or both.

By the way, I understand we all have different needs, but I found this request interesting, as I wish other CAT tools would actually show word counts the way Studio does.

Hi Daniel,

I was wondering the same thing a while back and found a somewhat functional workaround, have a look at the thread:

OK thanks Martin.

In the meantime I stopped using Trados altogether (and Wordfast shows no count), but this Zorro thing may turn out to be useful in other context.
