Batch Trim File Histories

How do trim the History from multiple files at once?

By default, a SnapGene sequence file contains embedded copies of all of the ancestral files that have contributed to the sequence. The ancestral sequences can be viewed and restored via the History view. Extensive History trees can result in very large SnapGene files. Trim a files "History" to reduce the file size.
