Images disappear

I have 3 separate issues with graphics.

1. Some images from the Videoscribe library disappear after the project has been saved and closed. When you return to the project there is an empty box in the timeline where the image used to be. If you play the project in this state it will stop at the empty image placeholder and won't progress any further.  This happens with quite a few of the images in the library, e.g. the arrows (arrow049).

2. If you search for 'line' in the image search box Videoscribe freezes completely.

3. Sometimes imported images do not render when creating the quicktime movie.

I am using a Mac Powerbook Pro and running version 1.3.30

Hi Daniel

Thanks for the info. I downloaded version 1.3.26 but was unable to install because of a certification problem. See attached file.
