tad newberrydisappearing work - frustrating!

i wish i knew what keystrokes i did, but twice this morning i had just finished delicately tweaking some of the best AE work the world would have ever seen (ha), and suddenly everything seemed to back up about 10 or 20 steps! i tried an "undo", and looking through the history but to no avail.

so, i loaded up the latest auto-save, which was just slightly better than what was currently on my screen, and started that section over.

any ideas?

thanks for helping out a bonehead!

As far as I know, AE doesn't come with an "Undo my most recent work in a surprising manner" keyboard shortcut.

What exact version number of AE CC are you running?

I wonder if it's a cache issue.

Without knowing what you pressed, I'm just shooting in the dark.

I would suggest you use the increment and save feature often until you can figure out what you're doing.

Yeah, without know those keystrokes, we're stumbling around in the dark. Keyboard shortcuts are great, but they can come back to bite you, too.
