Help with Nav.Bar page inspector

A week ago I used the ‘Branding’ in Nav.Bar to enter the company name + a logo. Now that function has disappeared from the page inspector.

Odd. Have you restarted RW? Your computer?

Yes; restarted both. The page inspector menu for Nav.Bar does not go lower than HTML.

Next, I’d try reinstalling the stack. It may be corrupt.

I do not know how to remove the old stack, so I simply reinstalled the stack. Made no difference.

From the RW8 menu, select “Reveal Addons Folder”. A finder window will open. In there, open the “Stacks” folder. This is where all of your stacks are saved. Delete the file for the .stack file and re-install. If the stack is part of a group of stacks, you will not see a stack file for the individual stack. In that case, you remove the group stack and reinstall.

I have removed a stacks folder; have reinstalled stacks and foundry. The page inspector still does not show anything below HTML for the Nav.Bar, so I cannot edit the NavBar

I’m out of suggestions. @isaiah may be able to help.

Does the appropriate nav bar menu show up if you create a brand new project and add the stack?

that’s a strange one.
can someone tell me what stack this is – perhaps forward me a copy so that i can take a look myself?

the screenshot on the original post shows (righthand image) the stack has only the generic Info Sidebar items – none of the custom items are there at all. this sort of implies that the stack is not loading correctly.

  • are all other stacks working OK?
  • does the Nav.Bar stack have the correct icon in the Stacks Library?
  • when you click on the Nav.Bar stack in the Stacks Library the pane at the bottom of the library shows info about the stack – what version number is listed?
  • the version number of Stacks is displayed in the upper righthand corner of the Edit Mode pane – where you select and move stacks around. it’s faded gray to stay unnoticed until you need it. what version number is listed there?

I believe it’s part of the Foundry stacks. I’m not at my Mac right now so can’t check or forward to you.

Adam(@Elixir)?

The OP did mention it was Foundry. The images shown there at the top seem to have slightly different stack names. One seems to have a period after the word Nav but with no space between the period and the word Bar, while the other seems to have a space… I know it is a little thing, and I can’t be completely sure from the screenshot, but they might be two different stacks? Not sure. Really hard to tell.

If @traut would like to send me a ZIP file containing his Foundry stack from the Stacks folder, as well a copy of the project file, I can try and take a look. You can email that ZIP file to adam at elixirgraphics dot com

If the ZIP file is more than say 4 or 5 mb, please send it using Dropbox or a similar service.
