Love narrowing down my image sets by using survey mode but have what should be a simple setting change need and wondering if its available...

I want to narrow down the max images shown at a time in Survey mode from the default 99images (useless due to each image being tiny in size) to something like 10 or 15 with any additional images "overflowing" and being pulled in as an image in the top 10 is removed from consideration. Is this a setting I can change?

For context: often I will have 100 images from each "look" after a shoot and ultimately I want to quickly identify the top ~10 and discard the rest, previously I used Adobe Bridge and would select the entire 100image set/selection and bridge's 'survey mode' would show me max 9 at a time making each large enough to make a decision about and as one was deleted it automatically pulled in a new one from the remaining images in the set that had been over flowing (as lightroom does but the cut off is much higher)

Good idea.

I just crank the thumbnail size up then scroll in library module.
