Abbreviations for Word Count Core plugin

Use case or problem

Currently, the core word count plugin takes a lot of space in the status bar, especially when you have a slim status bar in the center.

Proposed solution

i’d love the core plugin to add an option to use abbreviations in the status bar:

  • 1040 words => 1040w
  • 3457 characters => 3457c

a simple toggle to use abbreviations would do. I know this functionaliy exists as the Better Word Count plugin, but it’s unreliable & buggy, and i think it should be baked in.

Current workaround (optional)

Use better word count plugin.
