Losing saved progress

Hey! I’m working on a display typeface for my team. I’ve worked up to a version 21 and was able to successfully export for testing on Adobe Illustrator. I’ve been saving rigorously as I know all too well how frustrating lost progress can be.

That being said, I opened up Glyphs and noticed that the file name/version was 18. I was able to take the exported version but when I opened it up It’s displaying differently.

Is there anyway I can salvage my progress through this exported typeface?

Could it be you opened the wrong file? Glyphs does not handle the file system.
