GoldMine : Max Records to Show

Did you know that you can control how many items are shown in any given list view? This is easy.

1. Right-click within the list you want to control (in our case, the History Tab).

2. Select Options | Maximum Number of Records Shown.

3. Input the new number of records you want to see.

4. Ok your way out.

Decreasing this number can help boost GoldMine performance, but use with care!
