Vanishing social media Link Buttons.

I followed the tutorial technique for creating footer buttons links.

All seemed good for awhile, but I went back to add another link to the row.
Upon doing so, the behavior changed, it picked up the previous link Information from the prior button.

Working off the assumption I was missing something, I created a new document using the tutorial set of link buttons.
They behaved the same, with error.

Created 5 buttons,
clicked out of the enclosing box. 
Next clicked back in,
highlighted the last button,
clicked right arrow, 
clicked insert pict box,
selected a pict and returned to place.

Clicked the link creation button.

Found the problem again which was:
it brought the prior link into the new button so they are tied. ( here is where I think I am missing something, since I  can't figure out why it is carried to the button)
I found if I remove the link and say none, I can then add a new link to the new button.
When I previewed at this point, all of the first 5 buttons that had been working did not preview, just the last one created appears.(first 5 don't exist except the spacing)
I saved and restarted Xway.
Upon reopening the 5 buttons have question marks and the last one is still showing. Attempted preview again for giggles and it displayed the same. All 5 buttons missing, (first 5 don't exist except the spacing) 6th button showing and functional.

Bug?

What am I missing?

Thanks

Follow up:
I just looked in the site folder within the package file and it appears all of my picts from the buttons except the last one are gone. So, the picts deleted and the links are gone but the place holders for where the picts in the html still exist.
