display 'sum of comments selected' feature SOLVED

Hello,

When grouping comments you get the quantity in parenthesis in the comments pane.

Now, is there any way to select a number of comments and having the editor display how many you selected -maybe in the properties pane?!

Hope this makes sense :roll:
