Xcode 4: Show Only Recently Edited Files

There is an innocuous little icon in the lower left corner of Xcode 4 that can be quite helpful if you have a sizable project, yet you are working with just a handful of files.

From within the Project Navigator, tap the icon that looks like a clock, which is highlighted in the screenshot below:


This will change the file list displayed in the navigator to only those recently changed.

If anyone knows how to reset what is considered “recent” please post a comment.

    At least, it behaves that way for me – we’ll see what the 6.1 update brings…
