Is there a way to show the sum of certain attributes of the selected features?

for example, I'm selecting several buildings each having a number of users, selecting the buildings only shows their number, and what I do is copy the data and paste them into an excel sheet and then use an autosum formula to obtain the result.

Any ideas to solve this?

Activate Statistics Panel by clicking on Show Statistical Summary (a big sigma button), or View | Panels | Statistics Panel.

After selecting your Buildings layer and attribute field, tick on Selected feature only at the bottom.

  • I'm glad to hear that. Just if you find any of these (15 or 16 statistics by default) unnecessary, please click on the small ellipsis (dot-dot-dot) button at the lower-right corner. You can select items you need.
