    Corel painter 11 Crash

    While i was painting for hours on painter the application randomly closed and i lost all of my progess Argggh!!! This is very frustrating and angering; how can a professional program fail like this and why can you not restore the file like you can with microsoft word?

    Save and save often. In Window - Scripts (I know this command is in windows, don't know about Macs) you can see if you can play back scripts to recover lost data.

    The other thing is going to in Windows ... Edit - Preferences - General : Check off Create backup on save)

    If you haven't saved your document I don't know what to say. Sometimes it does save a backup when you receive a crash with the cARM dialog. and it stores it in a temp directory. In windows I've seen it stored in My Documents - Recovered.

    painter 11 is very unstable software... like painter 5.5 or 6... wait for patch... for example i can work in painter x at least 8 hours without exiting... but the good thing is manage your layers and don't create a lot of them. and save every 10 minutes.

    Make sure you have the latest patch. You may also want to save any custom brushes or workspaces/palletes/papers but if after upgrading to the latest patch doesn't work, you want to do a factory restore.

    Hold the shift key down when launching the program, you'll know you have done it right when it asks if you want to do a factory restore.
