A few Advanced Statistics Issues

Hey Brett!

Thanks as always for a dope app! I found a couple of issues with the Advanced Statistics.

  1. In the documentation, it says that Shift-Option opens the Advanced Statistics panel, but in the app the shortcut that seems to do that is Command-Option.

  2. Once said Advanced Statistics panel is open, the Close button has the Escape Key icon next to it, which I interpret as I can hit escape to dismiss that panel. However, it does not seem to work.

  3. I'm having trouble getting the Word Targets feature to work. I put "target: 900" on the first line of my document (no quotes, obviously), and followed it with a blank line. However, I don't see the circular progress indicator in the Adv Stats pane or the floating pane. Is there anything else I need to do?

I'm running Version 2.5.10 (930), I believe it's direct from your website.

    Looks like the documentation got separated from reality at some point.
    I'll update that. There's a keyboard shortcut, ⌘I, that will open it
    immediately, and close it as well. The escape key has been an issue for
    a while, so while it's supposed to work, it doesn't always, and I should
    just remove that icon entirely... sorry about that.

    Also note the floating panel, which can be useful because it can stay
    above your editor window as well. It's opened with ⌘⇧I

    The Target display has no background, it only shows the progress and not
    the remainder. Looking at it now that's probably something I should
    reconsider. I'm also noticing that it doesn't kick in if the target:
    meta is added while a document is open, only after closing and
    re-opening. I'll take a look at that as well.

    All good info. The close and reopen worked for the word target. Thanks Brett!
