When I open a certain svg file, Inkscape will look like the screenshot.


The file (45k) is available here

(I cannot copy objects from the inkscape instance to another).

I can open the file in a newly opened inkscape with File->Open without problems.

enter image description here

  • I clicked your link "here" and asked to open it in Inkscape. I already had an Inkscape instance opened. The new instance appeared with your drawing. There I copied an object and pasted it onto the artboard in the first Instance. No errors. I run my Firefox in one Sandbox and Incscape in another. I have Win7 Pro x64. – user287001 Mar 18 '17 at 10:23
  • What if you did not have the instance open? – Anders Lindén Mar 20 '17 at 9:37

    For me (Inkscape 0.92.1 on Linux) the file opened without problems. Tried to open the file with and without Inkscape already running, and importing it into an existing document. – Socowi Mar 22 '17 at 16:21
