There’s also a little panel that helps you select other listings and putting the command in your description.

You can press the control and option keys in preview to see how the link will look like when uploaded to eBay.

Thanks for using GarageSale,

Very nice update to entering weight and package size. This will be a much improved user experience. Thanks!


Could a “RETURN” be added to the title line? I am running out of screen space when editing a title with 80 characters. Yes, It does resize to a smaller font but it jumps to different font sizes and when the 80/80 is at the end it over runs the characters making the title partly obscured. Ebay actually adds 2 return to long titles with 80 characters. This would also make GS 9.6b13 look even more like the ebay web page. After upload this title has 2 returns in it.

This is what it looks like on ebay.

Having line breaks in the title field would be great, I know. Unfortunately, this is not as easy as it might seem and would add a lot of complexity.
I can’t promise anything, but I will take another look at it.

Anyways, did you already notice that the full title is shown in a tooltip if you hover your mouse over the title?

I think I found a workable way to make the title show all 80 characters. I made the GS pane wider than my 27" iMac screen shows and let the sides of the GS panel run off screen and the far edges or margins aren’t shown. The title is more important than the margins at the edges of the GS panel. The tooltip hover doesn’t run in real time but with a few second delay that disappears if I make an edit to the title

@rlmartin It’s not final yet but in a future update the title field could break the text if running out of space and could have multiple lines, like this:


Also, you can use the tab key to quickly jump from one option to the other:


This works with item specifics, as well:
