How do I open an ODG file that can't be 'recovered'?

I downloaded LibreOffice to my MacBook this morning in order to edit a Visio file.

I worked on the one-slide .ODG file for 3 hours, saving it a few times - but now can't open it at all:

  • The first time the program unexpectedly closed, I was doing a simple 'find and replace' on specific text on the slide.
  • When I recovered the file, error messages prevented me from saving it or even saving a version of it in another format.
  • The file then unexpectedly closed again, and I can't open the file or use the 'recovery' feature

Is there any way of accessing the file? I'll be happy if I can just see the content and do a 'printscreen', print to .PDF or similar...
