The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project will open its first official forum, on the Inkscape website, this August (2019). (Address/link will be provided at that time.) When that happens, new registrations will no longer be allowed in this forum and Inkscape support will be provided in the new forum. This forum will still be open for a while, so that existing topics can be finished, and existing users can have access to their contents. But all potential new members should register on the Inkscape website, and post their questions in the new forum, starting in August. If you have any questions or comments, you can post them here.

Since there haven't been any new messages for so long, and no one has ever replied to this message of mine I'm considering closing this forum entirely, in approx 6 months. If anyone has any comments about that, please feel free to post them.

what is going on?
« on: March 23, 2011, 11:04:42 AM »
Hi, When I open up my Inkscape program I am getting a box with a message that says " The preferences file C:Documents and SettingsVickyApplication DataInkscapePreferences .xml is not a valid xml document . Inkscape will run with default settings and new settings will not be saved.  Can anyone please tell me what this means?  It has just started doing this.  It will go ahead and open up but I am wondering if I need to change something. Thanks,Vicky

Hi, I had this problem a while ago and other members helped me fix the problem. The answer can be found here http://www.inkscapeforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=1920 Basically when the error pops up on your screen it will show the path. Follow the path and delete the file listed.
The post where I asked the same question can be found on this forum http://www.inkscapecuttingdesign.com/smf/index.php?topic=238.0
