    The word and headings count actually is a very useful tool for editorial SEO and if it’s invoked by clicking that information icon I do think it has a place there.

    Version 1.2 merges a pull request that detects whether the post contains blocks and then disables the wpautop behavior in the classic editor to prevent it from stripping the tags.

    That isn’t going to help third-party editors and plugins maintain support for editing Gutenberg content (one of the primary stated reasons for choosing the insanely-convoluted comment-based “structure” in place currently). Arbitrarily enabling or disabling wpautop is as breaking to plugins and third party tools as switching data formats to something universally accepted, like JSON, would be.

    It strikes me as a rather large and obtrusive display of non-essential information, which for some reason has been given priority placement at the top of the editor.

    I would think that it was placed at the top because it also has the Table of Contents. I’m not sure about the word or block count, but TOC could be very helpful for many writers, especially if a post becomes rather a long one.

    I’m not sure if any Gutenberg devs will read my comment, but what about the idea to be able to show that TOC on the published post, so readers could also utilize it?
