Hide folder counts in Groups panel

Post by Asutu »

Hi,

is it possible to hide the number of groups/subfolders for folders in the Groups panel? With a few folders, showing this count is starting to become somewhat distracting, especially because I'm usually not interested in the count of subfolders but rather in their contend. Also, with relatively long folder names and in a 13'' display, where is not practical to extend much the Groups panes, the number takes quite some space from the folder title (which again is more relevant for me).

This is merely aesthetic, but if this preference does not exists yet, maybe Bookends could consider in implementing it?

Many thanks,
Pedro

I think this isn't a bad idea so I've added it to the next update. You'll be able to right-click in the groups pane and hide or show the folder count badges.

On that note.... I would love to see the same count info for records contained inside each (static or smart) group. :P

The new preference could then switch on and off both of these indicators
The count-indicators would look the same; either counting items in a folder, or records in a group.

My little contribution to feature creep :oops:
