No I didn't resolve it yet.
Now when you say "sessionname.xml" are you talking about the
"sessionname.ardour" file? Or is there some other file? In the directory where
this session is, I have the sessionname.ardour file, Instant.xml, and a couple
of directories for sounds, automation, etc. that we're all familiar with. Just
trying to get clear about which file...
because I did open the sessionname.ardour file in a text editor, did a search
for the number reported in the error msg., found it referred to in a couple of
Region sections and removed from <Region= to </Region> where those were
contained. It still wouldn't open the file, just gives the error:
[ERROR]: Session "/d/fred/you are holy (snapshot you are holy)" did not load
So I guess I need to cleanse the .ardour file a little better, or just go
through it and rebuild it? Is there any documentation on this?
I'm going to go mess with it some more this morning and see if I can't fix it
