Notepad++ would show the byte size of a selected text a few versions ago, but now it only shows character count. I work with CJK characters and sometimes I need to know if a character is 3 bytes or 4. I'm opening this ticket as per the advice here: https://sourceforge.net/p/notepad-plus/discussion/331753/thread/a56dc902/

As a workaround I can go to View->Summary, but I'd prefer to see the byte size immediately. Could this please be re-implemented? Thank you.
