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.

Question about File Corruption
« on: June 12, 2012, 02:17:49 AM »
Hi!  I've just started trying to create svgs in inkscape for use with my Silhouette Cameo.  I have the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition, which can open svgs.  However, a couple of the files I've created will not open in Studio.  I get this message:  "The file you are trying to access cannot be loaded.  It may be corrupt."  However, other files, which I created at the same time, opens with no problem.  Does anyone know what is going on here?  I really don't want to have to create the files all over again.  Please help!

Thanks!  ~Lisa

I don't have the Silhouette Designer Edition, but I know that sometimes filters and the Path Effect Editor can cause problems with other programs.  Try copying and pasting your artwork into a new file.  Sometimes that will fix the problem.  HTH

I have the Silhouette Cameo but I do not use the Designer Edition software, and I think Heather is probably correct about filters and Path effect Editor causing that error message.
