Hi Phil/JB,

Not sure if this has been thought of or even already on the roadmap, but when using Archi I often miss the following which would be a real benefit having native support:

  • Number of elements selected in the model tree, basically any node in the tree: includes folders, elements, relationships, views and diagrams
  • Number of ArchiMate elements in the model
  • Number of ArchiMate relationships in the model
  • Number of views in the model

The first is the most useful for me, remaining are nice to haves but can be configured on or off through the archi.ini file.

I know much of this can be done using a jArchi script, and there is an example statistics.ajs for the last three points, but I believe this would be better native such that as selections are made or nodes are added/removed in the model tree the status bar is immediately and dynamically updated, without having to find the script and executing it.

Example mock up is shown attached.

I can add as a feature issue if you think this is non-complex to implement and useful to improving the usablity.
