Keeping track of how many Assets total

Recommended Posts

Trick:
Ever wonder how to keep track on how many assets in the folder? After all assets have been counted, add the info after the title of the sub category.
Here's the illustration;

Well that's pretty boring to do that always manually oneself. - Behind such panels sits a data structure (an internally used collection type) which usually knows and can be asked in prog code how many elements the collection has, so all that usually could be done and showed up automatically.

Ok, in the menu, where can I find that function? Can it also do a word count like what Microsoft Word can do?

It's not used/implemented so far, but this would be easy to add to the UI for assets. Such a counter value (# amount of elements) could be shown for a main category and it's possible subcategories and then dynamically update when elements are added or deleted. - You can make a feature request in the appropriate forum sections.

A word count in the assets sections or in text frames? - Not sure if a word count makes sense for the assets area.
