How to Increse number of History Lines

How to Increse number of History Lines

How to Increse number of History Lines

I am using Mechanical Desktop 6.  I need to know how to increase the number of lines available in the AutoCAD Text Window (F2).  I was able to find something within Autocad 14 but nothing in MDT.  In 14 it was called Historylines.

RE: How to Increse number of History Lines

If I understand you correctly you just want to see more lines at the same time? If so you just click on the border of the text window and drag it to be larger.

I hope it help


RE: How to Increse number of History Lines

Actually my problem was that there is a limit to the amount of lines you can go back in history.  I think it is 400.  I was looking to make this number about 1000 due to the fact that I have an assembly that has over 400 parts and I need to see them all as they are coming in.

I did end up getting an answer to this question from another source.  There is a lisp routine that will increase the number of history lines available. http://www.jtbworld.com/lisp/historylines.htm
