While editing/critiquing a 500 page manuscript for someone,

Customer Question

While editing/critiquing a 500 page manuscript for someone, I saved and closed, took MacBook Air with me on trip, now have lost all "yellow sticky note" comments I wrote in side margins. How can I retrieve? I expect manuscript was originally sent to me in Word and that my computer at some point perhaps made it into Pages tho I did not choose to do that. Any way I can retrieve the yellow notes? Operating system was recently updated to 10, prior to receiving the manuscript to work on.

I would like to try a few options to recover your notes.

Were using Preview for notes? If yes, can you please hold down the "alt" and click on File then "Save As" to a different filename.

Please let me know.
