cannot load settings .idea/workspace.xml


I am receiving the following error in my android studio project.

Cannot load settings from file
‘C:\Users\user\AndroidStudioProjects….idea\workspace.xml’: Error on line 3167: XML document structures must start and end within the same entity

I have looked at the line and nothing seems out of the ordinary

    <state vertical-scroll-proportion="0.8210526">
      <caret line="85" column="14" selection-start-line="85" selection-start-column="14" selection-end-line="86" selection-end-column="8" />
        <element signature="imports" expanded="true" />
        <element signature="e#2694#3007#0" expanded="true" />


In project/.idea you have broken workspace.xml file. you have to close Android Studio (Intellij IDEA), remove this file and start Android Studio. It will work..
