Then you don't have the same problem.

Which version?

Which system?

Which hardware?

Any third party plugins?

How big is your file?

What is the history of that file? Did you get it or create it? With which version?

What's in the file?

Did you already restart the computer?

There are colors in parts of the file, so what exactly did you do?

It would really help if you show how it's supposed to look.

 

Also: we need to see the structure in the layers panel and please take screenshots using the system tools. Thank you.
