Love it, but hate the bugs


I completely have fallen in love with this wonderful app, but since the Rio update, things have gone terribly wrong. I have many, many drawings which are organised into different folders and since the update after it 'Rebuilds database' most of my neatly organised drawings disappear. The first few times i panicked as the ones that disappeared i had spent hours on making but i soon found them in THE TRASH FOLDER. Disappointed. And every time it 'Rebuilds Database' Most of my drawings appear back in the trash folder now. It's not a problem retrieving them no, but it is far too time consuming and organising them takes even longer. I'm honestly not sure what is causing this whether it is full storage, bugs or some sort of glitch but could you please possibly find a way to fix it in the next update or so? That would make life much easier.
