New betas are coming but 1 sought-after feature is still missing...

New 1.4 betas are coming, they fix bugs, add improvements and are generally welcome but they still miss one highly sought-after feature:
- counter of selected tracks, next to total time of selection... As an optionally visible information, similarly to total time and volume un dB.

This is really frustrating, that I had to open Preferences each time I just want to count tracks in selection. Track times are so brilliantly and quickly summed up, why tracks can't be just counted?

Hm ... what other than "Items selected" here (just above the selection duration) do you really mean?

^ That only works if you have Prefer current selection option enabled. In my case I use Prefer currently playing track and that won't work when music is playing. But total time of selection in status bar works regardless of what selection method is chosen.

Thanks - I took a fresh portable to eliminate all my configurations ... But was I supposed to get total time of selection in the status bar then?

But the point is maybe the other way around: a request for a %selection_numberofitems% and %selection_length% for title formatting then?

OK guys, let me explain my wishes visually, using one of the most advanced graphic manipulation programs:




In my first post I was not clear enough to say, that I want it in status bar, where total time of selection and volume reside right now. It's not the first time when I am asking about it, so I was under false impression, that it is clear, but it wasn't.

I don't know if they'll ever add in that feature, but in the mean time, you can right-click and go to properties, and it shows the number of tracks in the titlebar.

Lol, you are ridiculous. This is what I want to avoid - multiple properties window opening when I am changing selection... I said that clearly in first post.

Preferences is not the same thing as Properties.
Not that clearly...

Hah, my mistake, you're right :-)
Anyway, now everything should be clear - what, where, why.
