The arrow that you press to make a new tab, the one on the right. One of the options is 'Delete' - I thought I was deleting a tab, but I deleted the entire sketch (yes I know the message asked me "Delete Sketch?", what can I say, I am not a genius). Anyway, is this deleted sketch anywhere on my computer still? I cannot find it in my trash. I am using a mac.
it only deletes the sketch when you use it on the first, main tab. But you are right, i never did that, but have to admit, that i would expect it to only delete this tab, but not the whole sketch folder with all the data, etc.
Take my advices with a gain of salt, as it is easier said that done. Even more after the act... But still, again, I advice everybody doing some serious Processing development (or other coding) to look at VCSes, like Bazaar, Mercurial or Git, or even SVN. It is a very valuable tool, allowing to preserve history of code (go back if an experiment is a failure...), to share easily on the Net if you wish, etc.
Last note: check if Mac has recovery tools: sometime it is possible to restore a deleted file (if its space haven't been recycled...).
