Hi Im new to this whole lightwave malarkey, and I have a question about auto save on the mac os x version.
Does it actually work and where do the files save to?
The hub usefully doesnt give any kind of file path of where its saving and there is absolutely no information about it in help.

Could someone please help
thanks

First, you must make sure that the hub is still running if you wish to retrieve the auto-saved files and do not restart your computer.

Second, the files are in a hidden folder called lwhub. To find this folder, go to Finder, hit "command + F" to initiate a search, then search using "Name contains lwhub" and "Visibility = invisible items."

There's a brief blurb for this in the manual (p.38), but the folder being invisible sure made it tricky to find.

Hope this helps.
