I’ve been working on a scene in Animate 3. Yesterday I’d exported a frame, saved, and set my computer to sleep with the file still open. This had not been a problem before, but today when I went to continue animating, one of my layers had suddenly lost the drawings.
I scrubbed through the timeline, and everything else is still intact, but those cells are empty. The library only shows an empty white box. Interestingly however, when I scrub through the drawing substitution, some of the missing drawings do appear in the box, only to vanish as soon as I stop.
Inside the project file folder, I can clearly see all the .tvg files. I even added them into the library, and can see all the missing drawings there. I tried to drag one onto the layer, but it didn’t work. I made a new test layer to try and drag them into, but it did not work either.
I am not getting any error messages. I did not rename the folder or project, or move the project or file. I did rename the layer, but that did not cause problems when I did it. It is saved on an internal drive.
Is there some way to re-link these drawings?

(Sorry if this is a question that’s already been answered somewhere. I wasn’t able to find any answers for Animate 3.)
