Sometimes there is a little message at the bottom of my LR catalogue (in the bar that runs along the bottom of the window below the images, with the sort options, etc in) that tells me how many photos I am looking at, or have selected.
E.g. 1201 out of 3000
Sometimes its there, sometimes it isn't.
I haven't purposefully turned it off, as far as i'm aware. Any ideas what makes this message appear?
