Hi and welcome here,
tested ok with 1.0.2 under Windows.
Beware, newer versions of Synfig use a slightly different file format, then it makes crash 1.1.11 :/
I would advice you to use a dev version as 1.0.2 is known to be buggy in some points and you will not have necessarilly the possibility to use you 1.0.2 files in newer version.
Cheers
Always check Wiki/FAQ first! - Use last builds only: Stable 1.2.0 / Dev 1.3.4 (highly recommended)

I have the same problem, but it might be oom (out of memory) killer.
Oom killer kills program when memory is low, each program have scale, higher number- program will be kill first.
To change scale/score you need to find pid of synfig:

1.run synfig

2.open terminal and write

Code: Select all

pidof synfigstudio
and you got pid.

3.you can check oom score of synfig by command

Code: Select all

cat /proc/PID/oom_score
oom score is from -17 to 17.

4.to change score you need to write

Code: Select all

sudo echo X > /proc/PID/oom_adj
where X is from -17 to 17 (we want lower so the number must be on minus)

5.and done, you can check if this work by

Code: Select all

cat /proc/PID/oom_score

Hi everyone,

Sorry for the late answer. I went to finish a project. For finish it, I created several files I didn't lost of time in recreating the project.
I'm beginning a new project, and after 3 hours of work until my file is corrupted again.
I tried to configure the OOM Killer putting the OOM score to -17, as recommend by Majkel and as it wrote in several documentation. The opening of the corrupted file took long times without success, synfig crash again.

Isn't it a solution to restore this file of 77,2Ko

So I'm going to do the project from crash in following the same process than before making many backup

Thanks
