Can you change shots left to the CFexpress card rather than the SD card

I have a 128 Gb CFexpress card recording RAW and a 64 Gb SD card for JPGs. It appears that the display always shows the shots left for the SD card. I'd like to know the shots left on the CFexpress as it will probably be full before the SD card? Can this be switched?

When your CF card gets to the point where it has less free space, the number of available shots may take a big drop?

Seems like the "fix" is to use a 128GB or larger SD card. Then your CF Express card would always have less space.

My problem was that I was just learning the camera and finally figured out that with a 128Gb CFx card, it's capable of about 2,700 shots as displayed on the screen. I had never sat down and divided 128Gb by 50 Mb and didn't expect to have that number of shots on the card. A RAW is 45-70MB per image as I only shoot stills, the 128Gb card is plenty big for me.
