How do we purge some of the older logged changes to a Text field with "Log Edits" checked? It gets extremely long in Grid Edit mode when trying to update.

If you "want" to do a few by hand, then you would turn off the Log Changed Field Property, make your changes, and then turn it back on. If you want more of a global change you would make a new formula field which would contain what you want the purged value to read, and then coax that text into the Log Changes field.

There are a couple of ways to do quickly that if you have a large number to do.

The starting point would be to decide how much history you want to keep, like "keep the last 5 updates" or keep the last 200 characters.
