Q: I've sent XMR to a subaddress that isn't showing up, will it still arrive in my wallet?
A: Yes. Subaddresses are deterministic based on your primary address. While scanning for outputs your wallet looks ahead a couple hundred subaddresses, so exiting the wallet improperly doesn't result in a loss of funds.
Q: How can I prevent this from happening in the future?
A: Use the
save command after generating a subaddress. Use
exit to exit the wallet.
