Just upgraded from 5.2.34.  Please bring back the display feature that showed the number of rows returned by the query in the tab where the data is displayed.  It used to appear in the bar w/ the Export button and the Filter search window.  And yes, I see that the number of rows returned displays in the Output window, but if you're running many queries (that now have to be run in separate windows - see my feature request Bug #67364) trying to match up the rows returned to the right query is just too time-consuming and error-prone.  

I've just started a new ETL project where I'm processing a new data set into our existing db.  I need to run queries on the fly, examine the results and compare to the previous queries.  Lather, rinse, repeat.  This version is practically useless for this purpose where I've had a well-established workflow for 5 different projects.  I also have other processes with similar workflows.  Now I'll either have to find the old installer file for WB or do the work in Toad (which has issues of its own).  

How to repeat:
Run several queries on the same tables but w/ variations to the where clauses - having to copy and paste the query into a new tab and then modify it. Now try to compare the results and figure out which query returned how many rows.

Suggested fix:
Restore the display of the number of rows in each data output tab.
