@ilja nothing to do, it crashes again. I just sent you a crash report, you should have received it… let me know.

Anything new with synching???

Yikes! I think i’m going to stay with my 65 downgrade.

Also still waiting for listing import… via ebay listing number. Have so many listings that I can’t import…simply because a database somewhere was down during its creation…

The crash does not concern general use, this beta seems to work good as previous ones. The bug I am talking about is very particular and happens only if you click on account icon, nothing more.

Added more fixes for this problem, please try again with beta 68.

Yes Ilja, I will do it but this bug is not at the top of my needs (and maybe not only mine, if anyone else noticed it before)… what about synching?? I really need to restart it…

What’s your issue with syncing? Our server is up and running again.

I’m not sure I understand this. Are you saying that some listings you started on Mac A do not appear on Mac B, even though syncing is running without errors on both Macs?

I never received any news from my last problem (log sent by private message…). Since they happened after the problem was solved (or at least, I thought it was later), I never restarted it, so I am still stuck…

No. I created listings via normal ebay site. Upon garagesale ebay import they don’t appear.

Did you create those listings with an eBay account that is not available in GarageSale maybe?

Regards, Kristian

No…It seems their are time gaps where listings weren’t being recognized for some time. Some listings I listed that day between certain times appear… while others don’t.

That’s odd. You’re sure all these listings are available on your “My eBay” website?

Also, in the “Import from My eBay” panel did you already check if there’re maybe one or more “Hide” options selected by accident?

Regards, Kristian

For example. I have 1 account with 48 listings. Only 42 appear on Garagesale. 6 Are missing on import. I have unselected and selected settings. Doesn’t help. Also one item imported as not started yet… but it is. Refresh doesn’t help.

That’s odd but maybe they are not available (yet) through the eBay API. That’s just a guess though.

That listing is probably already available in GarageSale (showing the correct listing status). If you import an already existing listing it will be imported as “prepared” automatically since each listing ID can only exist once (to prevent duplicates).
