I get that error with compressed files, so I never save compressed
rename it a zip file and unzip it, rename the unzipped file .car
Wendy, you are nothing short of heroic!
I mean for a troll, of course.
Any old paladin can swoop in and save the day, but when a self-proclaimed troll performs such an act of kindness,
rescuing all those frozen files from the heap . . .
Just tried it on two separate problem files - renaming as a zip file, unzipping, and then adding .car back to the end - and worked perfectly.
Saved without compression - (which saves much faster) and was able to reopen again without any problem.
Makes my whole workflow much more viable - so thanks for posting the solution.
EDIT - ah, now I’m remembering why you never trust a troll . . . it seems my recovered files no longer have their Parameters Tab, with all the necessary goodness found therein. So, if this was part of some cruel diabolical plot to push me over the edge, well, you’ve got me leaning. On the other hand, if you would like to be promoted back to hero, perhaps a hint on how to get that parameters tab to resurface?
