Cannot open Perspective Views in the Designer anymore

Yesterday I was working a project. Today when I go to open the views. I have this error:

"HTTP ERROR 500 java.lang.NullPointerException"

The log is this:

I lost my all work in perspective.
Someone can help me? Thanks

Can you open the pages in a client?
Most resources, including perspective views, are stored as local files. Check your server to see if they’re still there, I imagine that they are.
From memory it’s under your igntion install directory/data/projects

You didn’t give a specific version, so I can’t be sure, but the NPE seems to be implicating your session props resource; specifically when it tries to fetch a default theme. You could try deleting (or temporarily relocating) the session props resource to see if a newly created copy has the same issue; it’s located in the Ignition installation directory, with a path like:
data/projects/${YourProjectName}/com.inductiveautomation.perspective/session-props

Sorry for the version 8.1.0. I relocating the session props. After this, when I try save the project, the Designer say me there is difference in the versions in the gateway and on the designer. I solve the difference and now all it’s working again.
Once again Ignition demonstrates its solidity as a SCADA system.
