is the document still open and did you save it before cuting and pasting
I did save it before cutting & pasting----the document is still open as far as the blank page which I saved.
BTW---I don't want to use chat-please switch to email.
did you try to hit the undo button
I don't know where / what that is.
its under the edit button if you have word open
not using word-using 'pages' on safari
oh my goodness....so let me guess..you had a document...that was sent to you as an attachment...you clicked opened instead of save...and it opened in safari
no----I was creating a document in 'pages' and opened it to cut & paste something into it and when I went to paste it deleted it.
did you at anytime open word?
word was not involved in any way.
so what program did you open the document with ...if you opened it in safari...then no changes can be made to it
Ok---I use safari. Within safari I created a document using 'pages.' I kept it in 'documents' which is in safari. I opened the document to cut and paste from a document online. When I went to paste----the document I have been using disappeared as if deleted---but I did not hit 'delete'. I need to retrieve it.
what did you name the document
what im trying to say is that unless you saved it to a network or to your hard drive....the document is not save so more than likely it is gone....now if you saved it under a name ...we can do a search for it
I saved it under a name- Gastric Milieu Anatomy Notes I saved it in 'documents'
so when you go there do u still see the document
I see the document but it is blank. It obviously appears that I deleted it----but it had been saved prior to trying to cut & paste into it.
yes then unfortunately the document has been deleted
if it was on the actual hard drive it would have been easy to recovr
there is a way to retrieve it------it happened once before when I deleted all of my documents. I don't know what it means but an 'Alias' was created.
unfortunately you cant and i have a link from apples website to prove it if you would like
please let me know if you need additional information
only rate me when you are satisfied
ok---I will go back to the source that did it before-thanks
if you are not i can opt out
