Thanks for the suggestion which sounds like it would solve the first problem of the default Lorum Ipsum description text.
However, my second problem still exists and it’s quite an odd one.
I just did a test where I created a new design using Design Utility and put nothing in it apart from [[listingDescription]].
I opened a new listing using that design, highlighted the default Lorum Ipsum then wrote three lines and applied a bullet list to them using the styling option buttons. I then switch to Editor Mode (Code view), then switch back to Preview mode, and then this is where one of my editing problems occur.
The list at first looks like this:
But on switching to Editor Mode and then back to Preview it ends up looking like this attached image.
Using Undo does other weird things like not undoing or showing the wrong last thing to undo.
This is just one part of my editing problems since adding [[listingDescription]] into my own HTML Design. As mentioned in my second message in this post, in my Design, if I highlight the default text and start typing only one letter registers and won’t allow me to type any further - on switching to Editor Mode and then back to Preview, that letter hasn’t registered at all.
As mentioned, I’ve noticed amongst other things that there’s an issue with bulleted lists and how GS treats or writes code. My default description text I want to place is:
But as soon as I try doing anything with it to create my listing text, GS starts adding all sorts it’s own peculiar styles. indents, line breaks, DIVs, etc (I do not want this to happen, I have my own CSS taking care of everything including the indents that (my) bullet lists need
(it looks like this in GS before GS starts mucking about with it)
But if I apply say a bullet list to the three lines under “Notes”, then it does this (indenting all three lines but only one bullet):
The code also starts becoming a mess with unwanted margin attributes:
<ul style="margin: 0 0 0 17px; padding: 0;"><li><p>para1</p>
At other times I see the code adding all sorts of DIVs and styles that I just don’t want, e.g.:
<div style="font-size: 11pt;"><ul style="margin: 0 0 0 17px; padding: 0;"><li><div style="font-size: 11pt;">Line1</div><div style="font-size: 11pt;">Line2</div><div style="font-size: 11pt;">Line3</div></li><li>Line1</li><li>Line2</li><li>Line3<br><br></li></ul></div><div style="font-size: 11pt;"><br></div>
Is there any way to stop GS doing this and leave my text/code alone? (I do have “Don’t convert” set), and why are the bullets going wrong in a basic blank Design (template)?
NB, I just tested the bullet problem in one of the standard designs and it’s just as weird - on applying bullets to three lines it just did this:
I do hope you can suggest something to help or fix this? GS works well for automating eBay but after spending ages creating my own HTML Design, it seems there are some basic snags with how it decides to write it’s own HTML.
