FS#234 - File completely erased/corrupted; then duplicates upon loading with 1 blank,1 blue line version.

I have been working with a file in 2.2 which I then opened with beta 3. All seemed to be well for a couple of days. Today the application closed itself. When I restarted and tried to load the file it came up duplicated. One tab showed nothing, the other showed my drawing with blue lines and the tab headers (file name) were identical except that the ‘blue line’ tab had an asterisk after the file name indicating that the file had been changed. Highlighting a ‘blue line’ element showed the properties with colour white.

I’m running 64bit Ubuntu 11.04. ‘Blue line’ file attached. Any quick way to change the blue lines to default white?

Reason for closing:  Not a bug
Additional comments about closing:  

The color change is very likely not a software bug but a usage problem.

The application closing itself sounds like a bug, but not enough information is provided to fix it.

I can use Select All with all layers visible to restate white lines in Properties. However blocks are not changed so each block needs to be dealt with seperately. I now appear to have a fully recovered file showing white lines on my screen.

All colors in your drawing are defined 'ByLayer'. This means that the entities inherit their color from the layer they are on.
As they appear to be on layer 'Liner', change the color of layer 'Liner' from blue to white:

1. Make sure the layer list is visible:

  1. View - Toolbars - Layer List

2. Right-click on layer 'Liner' in the layer list
3. From the context menu, choose 'Edit Layer'
4. Change color to 'white' and click OK
