Canvas view shows only blank cavas

When I went to re-open a file I was working on during my last session, I am now unable to view any of the the objects in the "editing" view of Xcelsius. The canvas is completely blank (basic blue background, no grid showing).

However, when I go to preview the object, the .swf build/result is fine, just as I left it, and I can edit the objects (blindly) in the bject browser. I can not figure out whay this is so - is this human (my) error, or is there a fix?

BTW - this does not occur in other files that I have been working on, nor does it occur is previous versions of the same file that I have saved in the past.

Please advise.

    --> Open a new blank canvas

    --> Copy all the objects from Object Browser from your old dashboard and paste it in new blank new canvas

    Now it is happening to the new file that I have created. It seems that saving and exiting the file is causing the problem.

    Could it simply be that my computer does not have enough memory to display the image(s) in the design view until it is converted into the .swf view ("preview")?
