Placement of all graphics and scaled video´s reset to top corner

After a full day of editing I saved the project, rendered the video and closed the app. Today I start the app to do some changes and all the graphics and scaled video’s that I had positioned throughout the video have been reset to the top corner of the video. They are still scaled to the correct size but the layout is messed up. It was a lot of work to built this project and now I can start all over.


Does anybody have any idea how/why this could have hapened?
