 Hey negusnyul! Welcome! [[BR]]
 I'm not really sure about the "read-only" feature. At least I have never
 felt the need for it. If I don't want to save an accidentally altered
 document I just click "Don't save" in the alert popping up when closing
 the document. Maybe others have a different opinion. If so, I'd suggest to
 rename the menu item to "Lock" or something to avoid confusion with actual

 The word count might be handy. If you feel like it, you could rename it to
 "Info" and add a few more essentials. See Pe's "Statistics" in
 "Window|File Options..." for inspiration.  One could also take the
 currently selected text into account to show something like {{{ Lines:
 124 of 1928 }}}.

 For the coding style I defer to the local coding style police :)[[BR]]
 All I can say is that the use of the curly brackets in if/for/switch-case
 blocks should be re-read in the [http://www.haiku-os.org/development
 /coding-guidelines Guidelines]. The opening bracket should be on the same
 line, if needed at all. Also, respect those 80 chars/line.

 In my quite unexperienced opinion, it's a rather fine first patch, though
 it's always a good idea to discuss a planned feature addition beforehand.
 We have to be wary against feature-creep and a fix of something is always
 less controversial.
