Rapid Weaver 6.4 Preview issues and Publishing crashes!

I am having issues after update to Catalina…Preview doesn’t work as it should …cant save as it freezes and then gets stuck if i try to publish just from Edit mode!!! HELP!

What version of RW are you using?
What version of OSX?
Any RW plug ins?

We need more information to help.

As far as I know, RW6 is no longer supported and will not work correctly with the latest MacOS.

Hello Scott,

Thanks for your reply.

I am using RW 6.4

And I am on a Mac Desktop with Catalina iOS V 10.15.4

[See screen snap]…

I thought maybe I should just download/purchase RW 7…?

I don’t know about plug-ins…how do i find out which ones I have??

OK…Thanks for your reply…It has been odd since the upgrade.

So if I purchase and download RW 7 will I be able to transfer the whole site from RW6 ??? without any problems or losses???



I’d advise upgrading to RW8, but you’d need to make sure that everything you use (Stacks, Plugins etc.) will be compatible with RW8. If you use the Stacks plugin, version 4 would also be the best option.

But all of this depends on your budget and the time available to rebuild things in RW8.

There’s a detailed upgrade guide here https://help.realmacsoftware.com/en/articles/2201707-upgrading-from-rapidweaver-7-or-earlier

Ok…thanks Neil.

I will have a read and then consider what the best course is.

[The plug-ins are a bit of a mystery to me…a friend set up the original site using RW and I have just been involved in changing the content over the years…]
