It may have happened after an macOS update.

Sometimes updates, backup-restores, and cleaning utilities don't have quite the desired effects. Sometimes we mess things up ourselves -- bad things happen -- and then you have a corrupted library.

To fix:

  1. Open RapidWeaver and go to a Stacks page
  2. Choose Show Stacks Library in Finder from the Gear menu.
  3. First, remove stacks and plugins that you're not using. You can just place things in another folder or your desktop until you need them again.
  4. Next, remove anything that seems broken (either because it's not working, or because the files look corrupted in some way in the Finder).
  5. For corrupted stacks, redownload them directly from the developer or from the RapidWeaver Community Site.
  6. Reinstall the broken stacks by unzipping them and then dragging them into the Stacks folder.
  7. Restart RapidWeaver.

If you still have problems with some stacks after that, then you should contact the developer of the stack directly and report the issue.
