File corrupted

fbicknel
I see others have the same type of problems occasionally.

I have a few hours of work in this file:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B6nO63SNdpveU3RHX3pnU2FiNUk/view?usp=sharing

I was wondering if there is some way to recover the work... or I'll have to go back in time a few hours to get the last working version.

afaik, I didn't do anything unusual. I just saved my work and closed the file. When next I tried to open it, LC crashes.

Thanks in advance.

Details:

File was last worked on LibreCad 2.1.3
MacOS 10.12.6
File won't open on either that host or on LibreCad 2.0.9-2 on Ubuntu 16.04 (4.4.0-96)

The problem with your DXF file is a recursion.

In the block WallOutlet_single-gang you have somehow inserted the block WallOutlet_single-gang itself. Thus opening the file leads into an infinite loop where LibreCAD loads the block again and again until memory overflows.

I've manually fixed this by removing the recursive insert in block WallOutlet_single-gang:
GoodFile.dxf

You, sir, are a lord and a gentleman. Well, of bikes, but hey, I still thank you kindly.
