#1 Broken project file

Posted by: Ravelli | Date: 2020-08-04 10:57 | IP: IP Logged

Hi all,

one of my project files is broken. When I open it, the Tool window (left pane) is empty, and no file gets opened.

Opening the .ppr-file as text file in PSPad, I see one broken line:

Correct folder name would be '-skins'. Behind it there are ~250 invisible characters, where I can set my cursor to (maybe just a rending issue).

When I correct this line by renaming it to '-skins' and deleting the invisible characters, this project file correctly opens again with all files and settings.

Maybe those corrupted project files are caused by PSPad crashing regularly with an access violation? Such crashes make PSP sometimes forgetting settings in Program Settings, so I have to correct them again.

I'm using PSPad 5.0.3(377) under Windows 7 64 bit. The crashes happened also in previous versions, and there were also corrupted project files before.

I can send you the broken project file if needed.

Friendly greetings,
