"opening file failed"

Lawrence Sze shared this question 4 days ago

Recently, I have been unable to consistently reopen/share saved files.

For instance,

1) I am able to save and reopen the following file but it does not open for others properly


Tested on a mac, geogebra/3d/ opens but fails to load tile and gives the message "opening file failed"

2) this 2nd file was saved by me this morning and fails to open now even for myself.

Any ideas suggestions?

I am using chrome Version 89.0.4389.114 (Official Build) (64-bit) on windows 10.

https://www.geogebra.org/3d... is fine. Please post the 2nd file


@Mike, I think that the link is this one https://www.geogebra.org/ma...

We have a similar post on Reddit.

I couldn't open it online, too. In the details page, if I try to open the ggb file in v5, it gives an error, but the file opens. I've saved it and uploaded again, and seems to work fine on my profile. https://www.geogebra.org/m/t67s89yj

Editing works, too, but my default app for opening is Classic.


It's got saved with some bad syntax somehow

<expression label="b" exp="<expression label="c" exp="<expression label="d" exp="<expression label="e" exp="</construction>

Please try this (or Simona's version :) )


Thank you both! Is there a tutorial on handling files in the Geogebra ecosystem? I think I do not fully understand the various means by which a Geogebra document can be handled.
