How many comps do I have selected?

I have a couple of hundred comps in an AE project. I have selected several dozens in the project panel and I need to know how many I have selected (for counting purposes). Anyone knows if AE tells you this? If so, I can't find it anywhere.

Thanks.

Here's an idea: create a new project and import the project with hundreds of comps into it. Pull the comps you don't need into the trash can icon at the bottom of the project pane; your original project will be unaffected by this.

Then you can render the comps into a new destination folder, and when the renders are complete, you'll see the number of files in the destination folder's window.

I'm surprised it doesn't just tell you at the top how many you have selected.

If you have selected them you could drag them onto the Create new composition icon in the project panel and select single composition in the pop up. Just look at your total layers in this new comp and you have your number. Then delete the comp you just made.
