Default Calculating combined length of clips

Hi there - does anyone know if there's a way to select multiple, non-continuous clips, and have Pro Tools calculate their combined length, not including the space between them? I have multiple music tracks that I've laid out on a feature film, and I need a quick way to work out how much I've used.

I've tried to use the object grabber tool, and deselect 'Link Timeline and Edit Selection', but that still includes the space between clips in the calculation.

Default Re: Calculating combined length of clips

I know of no way to do what you want. The only idea I can offer is this;
Duplicate the playlist first(because you will be changing the duplicate).
Use the proper key commands to place all the clips together.
Once they are together with no blank space, you can select all and see the total time in the counter window.
Once you have the info you wanted, you can delete this duplicate playlist(or hide it if you think you might need to re-visit later).
