Any way to force WebDirect to show "records remaining to export" status box?

FM Pro 14 is well behaved when exporting a very large file to a csv or Excel or whatever, and displays a dialog with a "records remaining to  export: xx,xxx,xxx" like this:

Sadly, WebDirect doesn't seem to display a similar dialog. It just does the export in the background, then minutes, hours, or days later, (depending on the size of the export) pops up another dialog that says the files are ready to download, with buttons for each file(s) that when pressed will then download them to the browser's download default location.

 

Any known workaround to get it to present the dialog in WebDirect so the user isn't left clueless that something is going on?

 

Background info: Running the export from a layout button that runs an export records script step. Running FM Server 14. Attached to WebDirect with Safari from OS X 10.10.3.
