Did you save it using the default file format (odg)?

What you describe may occur if you export to a graphics format (such as jpg). Then all objects will be merged into a pixel map, and the drawing objects are no longer available as separate entities.

It could also happen if Draw for some reason moves all objects to the background layer. Check if a new slide inherits content from the existing one. If this is the case, resetting your user profile might fix it.
