Oh Noes!!!


I was editing one of my stories, “Dark Heart” to be exact. When I realized I wanted to re-arrange the order of chapters a bit, I cut one out and started reading back for where I wanted to really put it. On the way there I found some other edits, and at some point copied something else, which of course… erased the clip-board which of course means I lost the whole section I’d meant to move… I didn’t realize this until -after- I’d saved over my old file…

I wonder if there is some way to retrieve “copy” history on the computer… doubtful but I will have to look into it.

  1. Look into svn (subversion) or git. If you had the doc under svn you could revert back to your initial version in one click; plus you could see side-by-side the various versions of the document over time, and see the parts you added/changed/removed. HTH

      I actually use Open-Office, and have since started using the versioning function… I do need to look into some of the copy-board history things out there, just in case I forget again and copy over what I wanted/needed.
