Layout PRO 2016 Cannot find Autosave-File

Postby MichaelNeyses » Wed Jul 06, 2016 10:55 am

Hello All,
I just lost 3 hrs of work in layout bauaus a crash occured. Relaunching did offer older files but nothing recent enough to help. I checked the box autosave in presets where it should be saving my work every five minutes. Is anyone come along a similar problem or is there a certain sytems folder where such files will be stored?

I would be happy to have a hint here

There should be a file called 'Backup of FILENAME.layout' saved where the file 'FILENAME.layout' was saved.

It happened to me too. Sometimes you're lucky and after reopening Layout you have a recent file, sometimes just nothing and you lose hours of work.

I solved it adding few lines to my autohotkey script, it generates a loop that autosaves every 2 minutes.

Code: Select all
SetTimer, AutoSave, 120000

   IfWinActive, ahk_exe C:\Program Files\SketchUp\SketchUp 2016\LayOut\LayOut.exe
      Send, {LCtrl Down}s{LControl Up}


where 120000 is the time in milliseconds.
