I’ve seen too many threads like this recently.
YOU CHOOSE where to store files, this is not iOS where the file system is hidden it’s MacOS (OSX) with a propper file/folder structure.
You cannot just click save and hope for the best, you have to save files in locations(folders) of your making/choosing.
This goes for all apps, not just RW, the thought that people are just clicking save and expecting whatever they are creating to ‘go’ somewhere sensible I find frankly appalling.
And then to go online babbling about ‘app xxx has lost/deleted all my files’ because the recent files list is empty … It’s a list, a list of RECENTLY ACCESSED FILES, it’s NOT the files themselves.
And why may you ask is it empty? well I’d put money on the user having just updated the app and therefore MacOS sees it as a new app, a ‘new’ APP, how can there be any recent files for a ‘new’ app?
The recent file list is a convenience, a helpful little tool, it’s NOT the file system.
You shouldn’t have to search for ANYTHING you created, is SHOULD have been saved in a sensible location in your Documents /Dropbox/OneDrive etc folder with a sensible name.
Do some googling, find out about folders, about organisation, about MacOS Finder.
At least I now know what my talk at the WeaverSpace Conference 2017 is going to be about … File management, inc folder structure, file names, version progression, Dropbox, backup etc etc.
