I was removingborders from my document. I had highlighted the whole document by 'select All'
in File (inside my document.)My next step was to reduce the number of words per line.I do
not know if either of my steps were done.

Use Google or some other search engine to look for an Undelete utility and see if this can
find an earlier copy of your saved file.  

If everything was selected everything would be replaced by the next key pressed, which might
explain why everything vanished. 

The more you use your computer in the meantime the less the chances of you finding a copy
of the file in question.
