Still confused by stacks vs rapid weaver


(Hugh Sakols) #1

Make sure to buy Stacks as well. What a nice piece of software. No, I wasn’t frustrated:sweat_smile:

Ask for a refund if you’re ready to give up.

RapidWeaver + Stacks can do amazing things, but not in 5 minutes.

Better stick to what you know.

Take a look at this thread. It’s not a 5 minute, 1 week or 1 month learning curve. It’s an amazing, powerful program that you need to spend time learning.

If you’re not ready to give up, there is documentation on Stacks 3.

There are some free getting started videos for RW.

There’s also a user manual.

But you’ll probably find the most help on here becuase this is a brilliant community, always ready to help. You can also search this forum to find topics or questions similar to your own.

Thank you for the user manual.

A Text stack has the same features that you’ll find in a RapidWeaver Styled Text page. Anything that you can do in a styled text page you’ll be able to do in a Text stack. That includes adding images, using HTML, or formatting your text.

So guess I was supposed to use the text from Rapidweaver. This is what I mean.

I haven’t given up yet.

If you use the Text stack, you’ll be able to add images and HTML into that, personally I always use Stacks, not styled text.

Are you using the “preview page in your browser” feature? That’s a good way of seeing what’s happening on a page, and it updates itself when you change something.

Thank you. That was quite helpful.
