Thanks for using GarageSale,
Ilja on behalf of the whole GS team

We have installed Version 6.8b6 (585), thanks for always being innovative with your updates.

We’re having an issue with the colors not changing from say yellow to green or green to red. Or if an auction is deleted, from a color to blank (no color). We refreshed the token and keep pressing Download Auction States but still the colors are not changing.

Sometimes it self corrects after a few hours, sometimes a day. It used to be immediately. We know this issue has been popping up in the past, just trying to understand what could be triggering it. Seems like it happens on every new beta update.

Do you think this is related to some sort of firewall or ad block or something?

Thanks again.


does it help to force-update auction states? To do so hold down the alt key (option key), then click on the Auction menu and select “Redownload auction states…”.
