I have installed and opened OpenShapa successfully within the last two weeks. On two different occasions I have tried to open files that were previously saved and the subsequent open file is blank even though the file name is located at the top of the OpenShapa window. Is there a way to correct this or a way to prevent the occurrence in the future?

I've had what sounds like a similar issue - blank spreadsheet with just the file name at the top. For me at least, it wasn't that the spreadsheet hadn't saved, it was that it wasn't displaying properly on my computer. When opened on another computer the cells were all there.

In my case, I had the display error when opening a very large file (lots of cells) on a PC running Win7; when I moved to a Mac the file was fine.

I've had a similar issue (I use a mac), but I found if I went to the variable list under spreadsheet, all the columns were simply hidden and I could just unhide them all. I've also figured that only happens to me when a video is attached to the openshapa file.

It sounds like this answer solved the issue? Let us know it it works:

It's a script that just resaves the file.
