Sorry if this is the wrong place to air this, but I didn´t know where else… Please excuse a total beginner at this. I´m running Blender 2.49b on Vista.
If I understand everything right the normal number keys (1-9 at the top of the keyboard, NOT on the numerical one) are supposed to show different layers. Just guessing that a new file starts on 1 as long as you don´t move anything on purpose. Well. So far so good. But I think this is the third time I´ve done the misstake of hitting the regular 3 instead of the numerical one (wanting to change the view), and have all my edits since the last save vanish. I tried undo, and I tried to press 1 (and all other layers, in the panel below as well) to try to go back, but I can´t find it. Am I (even more) a total noob regarding this and have missed something obvious, or is there anything I could have done to save the situation?
And yes, (now) I´ve checked the settings for autosave, as that didn´t do me any good either…
I love Blender (even if it is frustrating to know all the things it can do, and I can´t), but it seems like total madness that one wrong key pressed can make irrepairable damage. Please tell me that´s not the case.
