The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project opened its first official forum on its website this month (August 2019). https://inkscape.org/forums/ In an effort to combine all the different forums into one, this forum will no longer be accepting new members or new messages. However, it will remain open for a little while, for existing members, to have access to their contents, if they need them.

Any potential new members should register on the new forum, and post their message there. There is a special board for questions about using Inkscape for cutting machines (of all kinds). (https://inkscape.org/forums/cutplot/)

If you have any questions or comments (and you're an existing member) you can post them here.

Although I've been planning to put this forum in read-only mode, at the time of this transition, unfortunately, my personal circumstances have changed, and I won't be able to host this forum much longer. I'm not sure about the time frame. It could be as soon as the end of 2019, or as long as a year from now. If anyone is interested in taking it over, please contact me.

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.
