[Scribus] Crash when opening file
Tue Jan 13 02:13:36 CET 2004
We have just started to work on our first Scribus project. And we already have
a problem. Actually, it was my wife who had the problem so I don't know the
exact details of how this happened. She says she successfully created a
document (2 pages - a brochure) with a few text boxes and a few images. It
saved OK, everything seemed fine so far. Then she made some changes to it,
overwrote the original and started to have weird crashes. When I came from
work, Scribus would not open any of the two files she has created. A signal
11 exception was happening.
I restarted the machine - no good. Then I edited the files in a text editor -
from all ITEXT tags removed the contents of the CH attribute. Now the file
opens fine but of course the text is gone.
BTW, we're using version 1.1.4.
Any suggestions? We really need this to work ASAP but we're hesitating - what
if we have the document ready and then suddenly Scribus stops opening it?
Maybe we should go back to the latest stable release?
If anyone is interested, I can send the SLA file (only 18 kB) that crashes
