Displaying the current image dimensions

Is there a way to display (constantly while editing) the current image's dimensions (preferably in pixels)?  I know I can use the resize dialog but I'm looking for a persistent display of the image's dimensions while editing (status bar, document tab, etc.) without having to open the resize dialog.  I want to be able to do successive crops on an image and see the size after each crop without having to open the resize dialog.

Thanks!

Neither of these options are available in Illustrator 2020. I'd like to have dimensions back in the Status Bar -- how do I do that? Why was that option removed?
