When looking at Avoid/Passive Voice/etc. would be nice if there were <- -> arrow buttons that allow me to move quickly to the next/previous occurrence. For instance, if I have Avoid and Passive Voice enabled, but everything else disabled, clicking -> would take me to the next occurrence, regardless of whether it was a word/phrase to avoid or some passive voice bogosity. Of course, there should be keyboard shortcuts as well.

I would like a count of the current number of instances for each: Avoid, Prefer Alternate, Passive Voice, et al. Just a little, gray number off to the far right of the toggle line, flush with the right edge of the pane.

When I highlight a range of text, it would like to see a count of the number of sentences in addition to characters, words, and lines.

    Just added sentence count for the next version. It's a little tricky
    because acronyms (T.M.N.T.) and abbreviations (Dr., Mrs.) all register
    as sentence ends and I haven't found a smooth way around that yet. But
    for all other purposes it gives an accurate count.

    As far as the indicators, I agree that might be useful. I'll have to
    think about the arrow key implementation, but that would probably be
    useful if it were a long document and you knew there were 2 avoid words
    and didn't want to have to scan for them. I'll figure something out.

    I mainly want to avoid having to use the mouse to scroll to find occurrences of flagged text. I want key combinations that will take me to the next/previous occurrence, preferably selecting it so I can type a replacement immediately if it suits me. Thanks!
