    The filters and sorting is awesome. If I match a particular name, I'd like to know how much those resources are taking up in terms of memory, but there's no way to see that without adding up columns of hundreds of numbers by hand. Can we see a total at the top or bottom of the Managed/Native memory use columns? Also a count of the number of items in the list, please.

    Also it would be great if we can rearrange the column order in Preferences. Not all of us have large 4k monitors and so it's cumbersome to have to scroll to the right to see these critical values. Whereas "Static" and "Address" I don't ever use and they are collapsed.

    Related bug: If you click the background of the horizontal scroll bar to make it go one-page right, the click falls through and activates the item in the row. Basically you have to drag the scrollbar right, every time, which is annoying.

    Thanks for listening and for creating a great tool!

    Worse case, it would be great if you could provide a button to export the data as a CSV and then we could filter, count, and sum the data in Excel or Google Sheets. Export either all data or just the objects currently visible in the table.

    Hello tessellation, thanks for your feedback!
    We have noted it down and are working to address your requests, both for hiding the unnecessary columns and for showing the total usage of the assets shown in the table. You can see below a little sneak peek of what you can expect to get - if nothing explodes - before the end of February (it is still work in progress!)

    We are also working on further improvements of the overall table experience so that it will be easier to navigate through the data. As for the CSV export, we are planning to look into it once we are more settled on the tables, as we would treat the CSV format as quasi-API.

    Hope this helps… Otherwise just ask and I will do my best to provide more information.
    And please keep on providing feedback and helping us shape the tool! We might not always be very fast in replying, but we look at each forum post and try to address the input we receive as much as we can :)

    BTW, this was, coincidentally, fixed by just removing all links from the tables. They were causing all kinds of workflow pains, weren't a good UX affordance and any workflow they did allow for is now moved to the Details Panel.
