Failed to open svg file

Postby cradle2dr » Thu Apr 27, 2017 4:27 am

Hello there,

Somebody please help! I know that I should have made back ups or autosaved, but now it's a too late and I am sorry.
Can I please ask you to recover the attached svg file on which inkscape crashed while saving and which is now corrupt?

I have already tried to rename the file and to open in in word/notepad, but in word it shows me rectangles and in notepad it appears blank (although I can scroll down through a couple of pages).

Thank you! ... _merge.svg

Sorry. Nothing to work with, as far as I can tell.
Have a nice day.

I'm using Inkscape 0.92.2 (5c3e80d, 2017-08-06), 64 bit win8.1

The Inkscape manual has lots of helpful info!

I'm not sure how it could be a nearly 1.5 mb file but not have any contents. But I can't find anything either.

Be sure to set up autosave, before it happens again :D
