Recovering previous save?

    Just saved a file that I shouldn't have saved. SO, what are my options if any. Does Alibre keep a certain number of history saves of a file? Where can I find them? If I don't have that feature turned on, can I do that and how?

    Not a panic situation, just deleted a feature, but can't delete the sketch? And also can't delete a point & a plane that must have been related to that feature. I hate to have those red X's just floating around in the Design Explorer.

    Alibre does not hold previous versions - unless you are holding designs in M-Files (where you can 'roll-back' to a previous version).

    If you can't delete something, it's because something else depends on it. So the sketch that you can't delete may define a Point or Axis (for example) - either of which may have helped to define a plane....

    You have to work back through the chain of dependencies in reverse order.

    Or replace the reference that prevents deleting the sketch?

    Wound up deleting a few features that I didn't really want to delete, but worked my way thru it. Thanks guys.
