won't save or open a new document
« on: February 10, 2021, 12:26:40 pm »
Everything was fine until a few days ago when Scribus 1.4.8, Windows 10 froze. Had to close via task manager which said "not responding".

Now I cannot create a new document. I can open existing documents and edit them and save, but I cannot "Save as" - so again it refuses to make a new document. If I open Scribus without using an existing document then again it freezes.

I have done a re-install, removing Scribus via Windows "add or remove programs" and then installing a recently downloaded version. Tried twice. No joy so I guess that somewhere there are files that windows does not removed which remain corrupted - for example it still remembers "open recent..." even after a re-install, or maybe a Windows setting. I have run an error check on Windows and all other programs behave properly.

Any ideas?
