    Hotkey or Mouse Gesture to open History Folder

    John Wayman

      I recently discovered the History folder. When working deep in an assembly, quite often I will make a Mate between 2 items and SW will, most helpfully, mate them opposite to the way I wanted. The highlight in the model tree always seems to find its way to some other component altogether, I don't know why.

      There are several ways to find the errant Mate and flip it, I know, including breadcrumbs, scroll down to the bottom of the Mates folder, find the item in the model tree and dig around until you find the mate, etc., but one that I currently favour is to open the History Folder and click on the top-most entry. Then I can work my magic to get the part mated the right way round.

      I just wondered, is there some hot key or mouse gesture I can use to open the History Folder and move the cursor to the top entry?

      It's only a Nice-To-Have, but there may well be some clever click that I haven't cottoned on to.
