Try the usual cure first.

Delete all files and ses if it starts to work again.

As to unsaved work, I think that a click of the save button now and then plus setting the autosave period is a great thing.

Hey Bob,
Thanks for the reply much appreciated. I do save as I go but occasionally forget to, my bad - I also have the auto save on but when the program terminates auto save doesn't help. I must save and create a file or I loose everything.
Please explain what you mean - and how to delete normal . dot files? Can you further expalin why this occurs -

If I type...


Into I see many articles that note this common cure. About autosave, set it to 1 minute?
