When working on a part in 7.5...Is there a way to make the next feature in the tree current (going up or down) using the keyboard arrow keys? Using right click to make a feature current is too slow. I don't like using the checkmarks because next thing you know, things are unchecked that you want to see. Solidworks makes it really nice by allowing use of the arrow keys to make the next command active/inactive with a setting. Does NX have that? Thanks in advance.

It may not use the 'arrow keys' but there are buttons to step your model forward and backward one step at a time.
Just open your part and toggle ON the 'Feature Replay' toolbar where you'll find the so-called VCR controls to 'Rewind', 'Fast Forward' and single stepping 'Forward' and 'Backward' your model's features. There's also a option where you can set the time between 'frames' and automatically playback your model's creation step-by-step like a 'movie'. What's handy is to pin open the Part Navigator panel so that you can see exactly where you are in the part history as you play it back.
Make first feature current: Ctrl + Shift + Home
Make next feature current: Ctrl + Shift + right arrow
Make previous feature current: Ctrl + Shift + left arrow
Make last feature current: Ctrl + Shift + End
You can find/modify these in the customize dialog (right click in the toolbar area and pick customize) commands tab -> keyboard... (feature replay section).
