Word counter goes wrong with Korean

Steps to reproduce

Type any Korean text like:
키스의 고유조건은 입술끼리 만나야 하고 특별한 기술은 필요치 않다.

Expected result

Word counter should show ‘9 words’.

Actual result

Word counter shows ‘28 words’.


  • Operating system: Windows 10
  • Obsidian version: 0.9.10

Additional information

Technically, it seems it’s not a bug but a mistaken feature.
Japanese and Chinese use the word-counting method that considers one character as one word, but Korean does not because it has a ‘word-spacing’ rule.
Yes, the word-counter should work just like working with English.

And it will work with Korean too, right?
Okay, maybe I have thought too deeply about this. Thank you!

If it doesn’t work, post it here.

Looks fixed in 0.9.11:


It is not working on v0.11.13. Please consider check…
