welcome to Ctrlr :o) – until you get used to how it
saves, you can have some unpleasant surprises.
waah where’s all my work gone.

i do not use ‘save versioned’, i’m not too sure about it
yet – i lost some work getting mixed up about what version
i was working on several times. so now i just make a new
file when i do a major save. and i appear to ‘save’ that
file when i do quicky saves, so i feel confident with that
way.

something you should watch out for if you use groups and
tabs .. is that modulators you put in them are then identified
with that tab/group. and if you drag from one group to another,
it (was, could have been fixed) keeping that attribute. so that
when you open the panel next time, all your objects have jumped
back into their former container.

the way to avoid this seems to be to drag them onto the workspace
first, to clear the names, and then they can be moved to their
destination.

all good, except i just found what is perhaps a bug:
the tabs attributes (UItab name, tab number) don’t exist before
the item is placed on the tab. and then are not destroyed when
the item is on no tab: the name is cleared, but the tab number
still exists. so you can have a modulator in a group that is not
on/in a tab, that has a tab number.

i noticed this looking at the Modulator List, and one had this
tabs attribute where the others didn’t, and none were on tabs.
