Fresco distorts, mangles, changes saved files when opening after saving

I have had this problem repeatedly. I work on a drawing. Close it. Then when I open it again the next morning several layers are distorted, changed missing. Elements of the drawing have been moved or distorted. And the names of the layers have been changed. I always lock ALL layers when closing/saving a file. 
 
I will have to stop using Fresco if this keeps happening.
 
This seems to me to be a major problem. Saving a file is one of the most basic things in any application. If a file changes randomly after being saved in an application I would not even qualify that application in beta, much less for release. 
 
I also own the Creative suite with Photoshop, Illustrator etc. but on the iPad Fresco is what I would prefer to use. 
 
I am sending screen shots of before (the file when I have finished working on it) and after (the file when I open it again and the file is distorted.)

I have also noticed 2 other notes on your support site regarding this problem that have not been solved.

Srishti,

Thanks. I think the issue has been solved. I also sent a bug report through the app.

 

This is their response. I am posting it in case it will help other people.

 

This is a bug that I believed to be fixed in the new build (v1.3). It was the result of opening/editing a document that contains previously-locked layers.

Since I can see that you've updated the app, I have a couple of questions:
Does this drawing have locked layers?
Are you drawing with vector brushes?
Is this older documents, created prior to the update, that you're noticing this? If it is, or you're unsure, please try creating a new document and following these steps:
1. Create a vector layer. Draw a circle and lock the layer
2. Close and reopen.
3. Unlock the layer, draw a stroke on the right side of the canvas.
4. Relock layer.
5. Close and reopen
6. Is the circle distorted?

Please let me know if the drawing is still distorting so I can let the team know that the bug is not fixed.

MY RESPONSE:

I have done what you asked and the circle is not distorted. I have been working on drawings since I wrote you and the issue has not occurred again, though I have been exporting various formats as I go along out of paranoia that I will lose what I have done. (This reminds me of using Apple computers in the 90s which crashed all the time). But it looks like the bug is fixed. Thanks.

This erratic behavior has happened to my illustration as well. Closed the app, opened it later only to find several layers had been rotated - and artwork that fell off of the canvas was deleted/cropped! Hours of work lost! So random and frustrating!Effed-up----November-21,-2020-11.24.32.jpg
