How does one add a Total(s) row to Views results?

After doing some research, it seems like the best way to get a Total(s) row added to a Views table is via the Views Aggregator Plus module. (Is there an easier/better way?)

As can be seen below, I’m trying to list a bunch of nodes grouped by the first column (the taxonomy term "Type"), with the second column containing the number of each.

I’d like to add an additional row to the bottom:

Total | 6

…but no matter what I try, the additional row doesn’t show up in spite of what the module documentation, various videos, and blog posts are telling me.

In the view Format, I’m using "Table with aggregation options", and the settings are as can be seen here:

Under Column Aggregation, I should be able to check "Apply column function" and select Sum (I think), but this has no effect on the live preview. I tried this on both fields (and even both together), and it made no difference.

I’d like to make the Total row part of the table, rather than a hacky solution where I calculate it in the view header or footer. How can this be done? What am I missing?
