Rapidweaver software dissapearded from my Macbook


I have a very strange problem with my Rapidweaver software as it seems to have dissapeared from my MacBook. As I write this down I admit that this problem sounds a bit ridiculous, but unfortunately it’s the truth.

I have made with RapidWeaversoftware the following website: www.bandlef.com.
This site is still visible.
I don’t make many changes to it, so I don’t use the software to make changes very often.

Now I want to make changes to the site and I want to make a new site, I discover the software has gone!

Does anybody know what the problem might be and how this might have occurred?

And, even more important, does anybody know a way how I can solve this problem?

Hope to hear from you.

You can download the RapidWeaver version you have used here:

If you haven’t deleted any preference files when getting lost the app file there should be no problem to use RapidWeaver as before

Thanks Michael,

I’m gonna try that!

I have got the software again!

Thank you very much for helping me with this.

Do you have any idea how the software might have disappeared?

Hi Michael,

Thanks for helping me with getting back my software on my Macbook again!

May I ask you one more thing?
Unfortunately now the preview flashes. (I never had this before)

Do you know what causes this problem and how to solve it?

I hope this problem can be solved easily and that you can help me solve this problem too.

Thank you in advance for your answer.

Best wishes,


What version of RapidWeaver and what OS do you use?

Hi Michael,

Thank you for your reply!

I use Rapidweaver 6.4 and macOSMojave, version 10.14.6.

Do you think I use a too high version?

Preview in RW6 stopped working with MacOS High Sierra (10.13). I think if I remember the work around folks used was to preview in your browser or of course upgrade Rapidweaver.

You should update to RapidWeaver 8. Version 6 will not work on 10.14

Thanks again Michael!

Thanks, Im gonna try to update!
