Would it be possible to offer a version of Text Statistics with the very common words excluded? Or maybe it already exists? It would be handy not to have to scroll down through all the a and the and so on until you come to Wykham-Twistleton-Fynnes occurring 1,433 times in your manuscript.

The Options tab in the statistics pane lets you set a list of words to ignore.

Way-hey! Thank you! (Does this list have to be done afresh for every project, or can it be moved from one project to another?)

Just realised you can copy and paste the ignore-me-please word list.

The list is shared across all projects. I'm not sure where it is stored, though, so I don't know if it will travel with the project to other systems.
