Finding back a most recent work in Publisher

Recommended Posts

Where can I find on my recent MacBook of Apple the last saved version of my work with 'save' in 'file' of Publisher? Now, after my vacation I can no longer find it under 'file' 'recent'. Only the more older ones.
Does anyone know how to find this most recent work?

The last "saved" files are listed in Recent Files. If they are not listed here, they probably weren't saved either.
Did you really save in APublisher and not another ASuite application? (for example via Edit in...)

Hi @Ria - don't depend just on the File > Open Recent option.

  • In the Finder, start by opening your Home directory.
  • Select File > Find (or press cmd-F).
  • Type ".afpub" into the search field that you should see in the top right corner (unless you have customised your Finder windows).

After a moment or two, depending on the performance of your machine, you should get a list of all the Affinity Publisher files saved within your home directory.  If you might have saved them outside your home directory, select "This Mac", as shown below left, to broaden the search scope.

You will have several date columns available.  Choose whatever seems most useful and sort in descending order to show most recent files at the top.  Hopefully, you'll be able to locate your missing project.  (Various refinements to that search could be made - you could for example, combine various search criteria at once - but that should get you started.)
