NullPointerException When Editing a Web Form

Question asked by chawtrey on Nov 8, 2012
I erroneously deleted the xsd associated with a web form.  After doing this I receive a NullPointerException when I attempt to edit the web form.

ava.lang.NullPointerException: expected property {http://www.alfresco.org/model/wcmappmodel/1.0}xmlschema of workspace://SpacesStore/70e6bac8-cccb-49bc-b737-26557fae8b4d for form NewsItem not to be null.

I tried to add the xsd back in via a "Add Content", but that doesn't seem to work.

Is there a way to reassociate an xsd file with this web form without loosing content.

We are running Alfresco Version: Community - v3.4.0 (a 3169)
