    I know what the answer will probably be to this. But as I was saving something in photoshop, I went to save something in illustrator that I had traced from an image I had just dragged from the net and it crashed on me and ive just lost two hours of work. I know theres obviously a lesson to be learnt here and save regualarly but.... I'm sure its happened to all of us.
    But anyway... is there by any chance a temporary saved file illustrator mite have made or something? I know when indesign crashed on me before it recovered my work.

    you wish
    I know how it feels, I think we´ve all been there.

    You may find yourself in luck, though. Look for a file ending .tmp in the folder where your file is saved. If not there, it may be in the trash in a folder called "Recovered files".

    It can´t be repeated enough, the thumb and index finger rule: :apple:+s
