XML Parser Error - Possible Cross-Language Problem Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Some of my colleagues from Amsterdam translated some wireframes from English to Dutch. I'd like to add some comments, but the files will not open. I'm getting this message:

The document "filename.graffle" could not be opened. XML parser error: Unexpected character 3 at line 1 Old-style plist parser error: Unexpected ';' or '-' after key at line 1

I have both OG 4 and 5 available on Leopard.

It could be that the file has become corrupt for whatever reason, there was also a bug in OmniGraffle 4.2.1 and earlier when running on Mac OS X 10.5 where you could export as another format and accidentally overwrite the Graffle file.

If you can send this file in to I'd be happy to take a look at it.
"Vroom! Vroom!!"
I've sent the file for your examination. Just fyi that my NL colleagues were able to circumvent the problem by exporting the file to vdx format. Very weird.
I am also having this exact same problem trying to send an OmniGraffle file to one of my colleagues who also also running the same version of OmniGraffle that I am (5.1.1). Did you ever isolate the cause of this problem?
