Progress Center images already captured

Question

BYE 3.1.16 Premium   - Camera 1100D
Hi - The Progress Center only displays the reducing number of seconds. This is duplicated in the Abort wheel. It would be so useful to actually see how many images in the batch have already been taken. If I glue my eyes to the screen, it sometimes flashes this information in these windows but I have to look carefully to catch it.

I have seen a picture in the manual which does show something like 25 / 180. There must be a setting somewhere which will let me see this.

There is no setting.  That counter (25 / 180) is *always* displayed during the image capture.  If you are taking 60 second images this number should be displayed for 60 seconds.

I suspect that you may be taking 180 very short images.  The only way this number would be flashing would be when taking short exposures of only a few seconds.  

How long are your exposures?

Regards,

Thanks for the response.
I am using the program not for astronomy but for capturing the building of a Sunbird nest, taking images every minute, but the point is - considering your explanation - in daylight hours with the camera determining the exposure which is faster than 1/100th sec most of the day. That is obviously the reason why the progress in number of images is not being displayed. Photography in daylight is not the intended application of BYE, so that is understandable. I guess I must have been seeing the numbers when using BYE for astrophotography, but taking it for granted. 

Thank you
