For those users who are making regular use of the History folder, from the FeatureManager Design Tree, to access the features that you have most recently created or edited — did you know you could set the length of the list of features displayed?

You can set the number of edited features listed in the History folder by opening any SOLIDWORKS document and performing the following steps:

  1. In the FeatureManager design tree, right-click the History folder
  2. Choose History Options.
  3. In the PropertyManager, under History Length, type a value between 1 and 99. (This must be an Integer)
