What A Disaster

I am beginning to wonder if anyone tests this app before they release an update. It has never worked well, but this last update is a disaster. After several attempts at syncing, I finally got it to work, but the sync went so fast I wondered if my data was going to be corrupt. I was particularly concerned with one entry that was quite large with numerous images. It turned out a jumbled up mess with images just thrown all over the place, not in order, blank boxes obscuring text, and finally, nothing at all on the bottom but a few characters and partial characters that looked as though invisible images were covering them up. At this point I think I am ready to turn my crucial entries into pdf files and abandoned macjournal completely. I'm afraid to use the sync feature in case it ends up scrambling my very carefully formatted entries on my desktop, or even worse, losing them all together.
