I select serveral books and would like to count how may I have selected but cannot see a number appearing anywhere on the screen
The way I found to tell how many books I have highlighted is to click on the edit metadata icon. At the top of the edit metadata window it tells you how many you have selected. Clicking cancel exits the window but leaves all books highlighted.
