How Can I Recover Lost File Keynote on Mac?

I worked on a keynote presentation for 4 hours, and I saved it on my Macbook Air. It was late in the night and I did not realize that I deleted it several minutes later. Unfortunately I have not synced with iCloud and it is not in trash neither. So my problem is that can I still recover my lost keynote file? Many thanks!

It does not matter even when you have emptied it from Trash. The lost keynote is still on your Mac and the deletion makes it inaccessible. Before it is overwritten by new data on your Mac, you still have chance to recover Mac keynote file with our tips.
