Corrupted LibreOffice text document

Hi all,

Does anyone have any idea how to recover a corrupted text document created in LibreOffice?
It was suddenly turned into an alias file for some reason, making it impossible to open or read.

Any help would be welcome!!

Can you define what you mean by ‘alias file’?

It’s basically a pointer that links to another file on MacOS.
Only that in my case, there is no original file linked to it, but the original had its file type changed somehow.

When I try to open it now, all I get is a salad of signs and symbols.
