Screenwriter 6 creates a timed backup file (.tmb) as you write. When restarting, Screenwriter will attempt to reopen the timed backup file automatically. If it does not, go to File menu, and selet Open. Change File Type to "Timed Backup", then select your file. If the filename you were working on does not appear you may need to navigate to the folder you were working from. You can also try searching for the filename under Windows Find command.
