Document Won't Open 'Crashes due to signal #6'
« on: March 10, 2019, 02:39:25 pm »
Hello,

I'm having trouble opening a file. The file was fine yesterday, but every time I try to open it I get a 'Crashes due to signal #6' error.

Apologies, I have searched around but can only find threads relating to linux. The software is working fine creating new documents etc... but this document seems to crash the software.

Please help!

Thank you!

... it's maybe possible to rescue the content, but for that we need the .sla file...

I have been able to recover corrupted *.sla file using XMLCopyEditor.

http://xml-copy-editor.sourceforge.net/

Try validating the *.sla file (which is XML format).

If it cannot be validated then the internal XML code needs to be corrected.

[Later edit] If you search for "signal #6" you will find this thread which (although referring to Linux) identifies Qt libraries as cause.
