Can't reproduce, works fine for me in r134. Does the beta work for you? Precisely what are you doing, in exact detail, in step 1?Ashley2013-06-17 14:08:50

In step 1 I am double clicking the layout screen and adding a sprite. Just a box that I fill in with any random color. For the tests that I have conducted I have done blue, orange, and pink. I then close the editor window and the sprite that I created is added to the layout. Then from there I can change it's size. I can give it everything a normal sprite can get all the way to the event sheet. For sake of time and energy I haven't been giving it code because if it is having problems with just existing on the layout I don't want to have to go into the.xml for event sheets and find and delete the instance from there as well. From there if I save then close the program and try to open and load the previous save file it gives me the error that I linked above. I have just tried with the 134 version beta and it still hasn't worked.

Thank you for the quick response and I hope to hear back soon.

I got it working somehow. The file I had saved I renamed a long time ago and recently it didn't like that I renamed it so it was just saving as "New Project" and that one is working just fine.
