Please check this other post here, they suggest installed Service Pack 1 to clear the issue.



Did you, by chance, try to open it using the Visio Designer? (DO NOT DO THIS FOR COMPLEX WORKFLOWS) I have done this for a complex workflow and it broke the Text-Based Designer. I'd also look to reinstall SharePoint Designer, as reinstalling fixed this for me.
