Show file size upon rendering (of PDF etc.)
Open, Needs TriagePublic


As a user, when the book is generated and I'm provided a download link, I want to know how big the file is before clicking, so that I can make an informed decision on how to handle the URL based on my platform.

Especially on Windows and other dumb platforms, it's entirely unpredictable what will happen with a link to PDF od dozens or hundreds, for instance.
This may require some interaction with the writers (currently mostly [[mw:OCG]]).

  • Still current and very appropriate; not obvious whether the writers provide this info
