Other reasons for moving the progress information were that it was impossible to use labels longer than a very short word (so you’d never know if it was “Indexing C++” or “Indexing Documentation”, or “Indexing QML”), and that space was also limited very much vertically because it all must fit between mode icons and build/run related tool buttons.
