Rapid Weaver Stacks Update problems

I am having problems with Rapidweaver v8.8.3 when updating stacks and themes.

If you look at the screen grab below you can see the Stacks Updates available. In the second screen grab you can see it says All STacks UP to Date but if I quit RW restart and run updates again the very same updates appear again showing no updates have actually been installed. Does anyone have any idea how I can fix this?

@Pixelart I’m not sure what’s going on in your case. I have 8.8.3 and some of the same stacks as you. No problems at all with updating and not constantly re-updating.

In RW Preferences Addons, is the location managed by RW?

If you click ‘Reveal in Finder’ where does that take you?

Heres the path:
…/Library/Group Containers/P97H7FTHWN.com.realmacsoftware.rapidweaver/Library/Application Support/Addons/

And in that folder, do you see any duplications?

And in the Stacks folder in that folder, any duplications there?

Some people have had issues with updates where for some reason there are multiple versions of the stacks installed.


No, not that folder, in the Addons folder as my screenshot above.


And in the Addons/Stacks folder?


Well, that’s me fresh out of ideas I’m afraid.

@Ruyton Is it worth uninstalling RW and starting with a fresh install? Although if I do this I don’t want to have to reinstall all the tacks and themes if possible.

I see I’m answering you on the Weavers. Space community too :)

Now Joe has stepped in over there, I’d stick with that thread.

@Ruyton Will do thanks for input Gary.
