How do I count the number of selected cells, regardless of cell content?.
There are two use cases. I need use case 2 right now:
When I make one or multiple selections, I want to know how many cells,
I want to select exactly N cells using multiple selections. I keep making and resizing selections until the number (which should be live on the screen somewhere) reaches N
For #1 I have a workaround: Select single cell containing text, copy (so it has an animated border), then make your selections, press paste, and read the count in the status bar.
For #2 I don't know a workaround that doesn't involve repeating workaround #1 dozens of times and then pressing undo.
