I had a similar problem, and trying StarTigress' solution did not fix the problem.

Eventually what worked for me was to open the file "[project].scriv \ Files \ version.txt" and delete the two space characters and type the number "16" (no quotes). I don't know why 16, but that's the number in that file in a new, blank project, so that's what I used—and it worked!

YMMV, but good luck!

I... ended up running it through my wife's Macbook. She was able to see the text in the files that had been replaced by a single strange symbol, or spaces.

Not a fix, but useful to know.
