Hmm, I see what you mean.

Hmm, I see what you mean. Could it be added as a toggle? That way lighter layers can make use of auto update and for heavier layers the user could disable it? I only persist because when you're removing triangles to reach a budget, it can be quite easy to go too far under budget and waste time as well as have the model look worse than it would be if it were at count, otherwise you'd have to spend more time adding that detail back in.

Sorry to be a pain, I really do appreciate you making this :)

Just press calculate again. Auto-update will slow-down everithing if picked layer contains too meny objects. That's why I don't integrated this option

Ah sorry, I meant to say have the count auto-update as you modify objects so the numbers displayed are always a current reflection of the triangle count.
