So, MangaStudioEX4 decided to completely and randomly destroy 24 pages of my file for Paladins Chapter One. As in, the pages were still there, but the actual layers I created were GONE. VANISHED. NON-EXISTANT. NO MORE.
Luckily, this program (apparently) seems to create “temp” page files whenever I save (which I do compulsively) so I managed to manually restore ALL of the file, so it only became a large pain in my rear rather then the end of my world.
Afterwards I saved, and saved not one, but TWO extra copies of the restored file. I also tried to create a PDF of the file, but that didn’t seem to work.
Now I shall scan/defrag the computer, go eat lunch/watch TV as my blood pressure settles back to normal, then come back and continue my work. ^__^
My advice to anyone caught in a similar situation: Lots and lots of deep, free breaths. Stay in control. Stay cool. Do not lose it.
Trust me. I’m really glad I was able to stay composed. May not have discovered/improvised a solution otherwise.
Stay cool, my friends.
I know I haven't updated in a while, and I owe a...three month update to you guys. It's coming.
In the meantime, hop over to my Tumblr which has been WAY more active lately: arkhivez.tumblr.com/
