Where did my Chapters Go?



I loaded an unedited epub into Sigil. Then edited it section by section, formatting using html and editing the text.

I created chapter breaks for each section I wanted to appear on a new page. There were about 50-60 of these. I planned on merging them later.

I hit Ctrl-Enter to create each section and renamed it, ie., Book Three a.xhtml; Atropos XI.xhtml, etc. Then I edited and saved with Ctrl-S.

I closed Sigil after a few days of this editing and reopened the file. The last two days of edits were gone.

It looked fine until I closed it. Everything was there. Upon reopening it had reverted to a March 21 version. The March 23 version (finished) is gone. I lost 20 hours of work.

Any thoughts? Thanks Mark

ps I'm using version Sigil 5.3

Solved! I forgot I had several versions with the same name in different places. I had been saving the changes to a version "hidden" on my C Drive. So it's all good.
