Inkscape may still crash, it's not perfect (although we try hard).

If it does so, then it will try to save the document you were working on.

On Unix (Linux, Mac OS X, *BSD, ...)

Inkscape will try to save to

  1. your home directory as filename.<datetime>.#
  2. /tmp/filename.<datetime>.#
  3. the current directory as filename.<datetime>.#

(in that order).

If the document does not already have a name, the filename is inkscape-emergency<datetime>.#.

Note that the saved file will not have the .svg extension!

On Windows

Inkscape will try to save to:

C:\Documents and Settings\<yourname>\
