So i just opened my Flash and started coding .. i had some panels to code that were similar in as.. Anyway..i open a panel, deleted all code from it, start doing some as from scratch..and after one hour i realize that i was editing the wrong panel. So in this way i lost about 500 lines of code and 10hrs of hard work
In this moment, i feel like i want to take my laptop and break it in small pieces
Later edit..:does anyone else had similar experiences? What do you guys do to keep your work “safe” at all time?
I use a Time Machine that backs up every minuet. Never can fail like that
I have no chance for such things as I can’t code more than 3-4 minutes without publishing, seeing actual results.
But sometimes mistakenly hitting the “Script Assit” button and lose precious undos (on trial and error situations) would result frustration.
Sometimes foolishly trying to hit the save button on File menu (instead of using shortcut as the mosue was very neer to that menu :?) and mistakenly hitting the save and compact would result losing all the undos
I don’t code, but illustrating in Flash and being on a roll without saving is pretty bad and has happened to me 3 or 4 times. I once lost 4 hrs of work thinking I did save and yeah.
I really wish Flash had an autosave feature, but what can you do.
Never can fail like that
And what if that fails… the closest thing to fail proof is backing up very regularly to a server on the other side of the world
I personally hit CTRL S every 2 minutes now on complete autopilot so even when I do make an infinite loop , I dont lose too much
same here… i’m on the auto-pilot
Also… right before doing major changes on a working file i do a copy :
Ctrl+O for Open, richtClick on the file + short drag > release > select Copy Here. .. this way i keep track on all major changes on a file..
why i use this method? because this way i can back-up multiple files at once..
Hi ! I use Ctrl + S every 2 or 3 minutes but sometimes with the usual I push by mistake on Ctrl + Q (the keys are side by side on my AZERTY Keyboard). In this case, I cry, cry, cry…
