Rollback Bar User Experiance

It might be just me but I alway find that I position myself wrong when using the rollback bar. I select the feature I want to have last in the list after rolling back, then when it is taken out by the rollback I have to pull the bar down to include this feature. I find I am always thinking in terms of how I want the rebuild to finish not what I don't want to include.

I'd also like the bar to be a bit fatter as I find sometimes I grab the feature rather than the bar. Very annoying when a feature is moved by mistake instead of the bar. I think the bar's selection area should be the same size as the feature's in the tree. 

Just some small issue's I find and would be interested if others have the same experiences.

    Bruce - I would also like a fatter bar!
    Please submit a feedback request. Why?
    The more users (and Pro users in particular) that ask for something, the quicker you will get it.

    An indicator in the assembly that a part is rolled back would be nice, but please don't have it so that it prevents you from manipulating the assembly.
    I much prefer the fact Onshape lets you continue to manipulate the assembly even if that part is rolled back.

    That is one annoyance that I've had in SolidWorks. If you are editing a sketch in a part, it can prevent you from doing anything in the assembly because the part is rolled back.

    A shortcut key for moving the rollback bar a single step up/down would be very useful for training!

    The single step shortcuts would be useful for debugging or finding when to insert a missing element in the history
