Just switch the counting system from “Zen” to “Hi-Lo”.
Sections with can be hidden. You display them clicking on .
When you click on ANY number, it means you don’t want to see its value displayed, and a X will show. If you want to display that value again, click on it! It’s very useful. For instance, you can hide the total of cards remaining, or hide the current count. Etc.
