I think I had a major CS crash, though it worked fine after the crash, and today, my settings are all lost. I've restored my workspace, and can reload all the styles and brushes, etc, but... I've lost the styles I had created... I thought they would just save themselves (not sure how, but that's what I thought anyhow!).... and they didn't! (go figure!)...
Anyway, I'm off to go browse and figure out how to save my own ASL file, then I'm going to open pages where I remember having used those styles and will make sure I save them into the ASL file.
Just posting here to
a) vent my frustration and despair
b) in case it ever helps someone (if you make a style, save it!)
