I see this is caused by the corrupted workspace file. Could you please go to the user folder inside MCreator's installation and upload the file workspace.mcreator to this ticket. You can edit your ticket and attach the file as the attachment to the ticket. I will try to manually fix the errors present in your workspace file. Thanks!

I have attached the file. Download this file and rename it to workspace.mcreator and replace the original file. After you do this, the workspace should start working. Please report back if it worked.

We will improve our parser in next update so MCreator won't crash in such cases. It seems that the issue was caused by two simultaneous writes to the workspace file. We will introduce a lock mechanism to prevent this from happening.

As this issue stops MCreator from working for the users who have this bug, I am raising the priority of this issue to Major.

I have changed the way workspace data is stored, in 1.8.0 this bug will be fixed - workspace files won't get corrupted. Closing the ticket.
