I've been using Flash to do vector art for a while now, and I'd like to think I've gotten the swing of it.

I've got Flash CS3 and I've imported a jpg to use as a guide on one layer. I have a working layer and a finished layer. I create the elements in one layer and paste them in place to my finished layer. I just turn off the eyeball on the finished one so I can focus on an element at a time.

However! I'll be working a way and when I turn on my finished layer to paste another element in, I find that a ton of stuff is just.. missing! like Flash decided that it didn't feel like hanging on to different parts of the picture and just dropped them.

What the heck is happening here??? It's getting really aggravating. Any one else having this problem?
