Please add a words count in Illustrator. In Indesign this is also a missing feature (at lest for the whole document) but I see it has been already requested...in Illustrator it would be more than welcome.

Ironically.. in most cases you'd wish to count chars in Illustrator, it probably means you had to do the document in InDesign... 😉
