Have the option to include a subtopic count on your topic items, like the second picture below. This could be toggled on/off by branch, with “off” as default. There could also be an option to “count filtered-off” items, or not.
Is there any way to get this information at this point? I see the high level statistics you can get on the map, but I would like to determine (not necessarily display) how many topics are under a given topic.
In addition to the options requested above, I wish that it were possible to hide the subtopic count. This could be either a View | Show/Hide option, a Print | Page Setup | Print option, or both. I often print top-level maps as handouts, and do not always want to advertise how much information I have chosen to omit.
