Scribus 1.4.5 does not open .sla files created with Scribus 1.4.4

Previous topic - Next topic


Hi all  :)

on Windows 7 (64 bit edition) one of my users created *.sla files with Scribus 1.4.4 (64 bit) - now I upgraded to Scribus 1.4.5 (64 Bit) and old .sla were unreadable. "File may be damaged or produced in a later version of Scribus" message appeared and editing header SCRIBUSUTF8NEW Version="1.4.5" did not help. Downgrading to Version 1.4.4 and things are back to normal again.

Is there a workaround for Scribus 1.4.5 to load "old" file?

Beste regards,


Can you please file this as a bug at with all the relevant info as well as the file in question. Thanks!
