When a search is done it would be useful to have a count (e.g. in the part of the status bar below the search panel) of the resulting notes list.
Second this - all I can do now is scroll a bit to eyeball it.
Yes, if I found the number of orphan notes for the query “- / \ [\ [”, then I would like to see a counter with the number of results.
This would help me estimate the amount of work involved in connecting the notes.
Then, after spending half an hour connecting the notes, you can see the changed data of the counter of the number of results for the request. And thus determine your efficiency.
Is it ok to cross link to a workaround I found?
I am not sure why you address the question to me, I just filed the FR. In any case, what I asked for in the OP has been implemented.
@WhiteNoise This FR can be closed because it is already implemented.
