Description J. Jordan 2012-04-18 16:11:41 UTC
The line count located in the status bar indicates the number of hard-returns instead of the number of lines.  The line count in the Statistics Docker is accurate so the underlying functionality is implemented correctly this appears to be a UI issue.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.enter several lines of text
2.look at line count indicator in status bar
Actual Results:  
Line count in status bar indicates number of hard returns prior to the location of the cursor.

Expected Results:  
Line count in status bar indicates number of lines of text prior to location of cursor.

Line count in Statistics Docker indicates total number of lines in document.

No a UI issues as such - the line numbers are not available from Qt - what we do in the satistics docker is manually counting - that is way too heavy for this case

It does however seem like there is a new functionality in Qt4.5 that will allow us to do this:


 No promises

Without som small magic the linenumber of a block was the same as the block number
Aso we need to add the linenumber relative to the block
