This is just speculation but, in V9.2 graphics, you could edit and resave a saved .gph file in a hex editor provided you did not
change the number of characters. Perhaps if you replace the % in ..plotregion1.barlabels[8].text.Arrpush 3.8% with another (valid)
character, you can recover your graph and continue editing.

The graph editor is quite nice and very useful. However, I have run 
into a problem. I was making an hbar graph, made many modifications, 
and then modified blabel to add a % sign (what many of us had asked 
for on the list). The editor accepted the % sign. I saved the graph, 
but when I tried to use it I received this message:

plotregion1.barlabels[8].text invalid name
error (198) reading file
Error in file, skipping lines:
  .plotregion1.barlabels[8].text.Arrpush 3.8%
graph1.gversion invalid name

I am now unable to -use- the graph and all of my time and work is 
lost. I know better now,  but I suggest that the editor not allow 
entries that will crash the graph.
