Okay, I understand the concept, but don’t agree with the logic. The issue with not being able to sort listings separately from templates creates more work for me.
I create listing templates for the various categories I sell from, and change the specifics (title, pics, custom details, category, and any description text that is specific to the item I’m selling.
When the templates are/were organized together, I could see and choose the most appropriate template from the column without scrolling, doing a search, etc.
eBay never rejected any of them as duplicates, and that was through last week when GS6 ceased to function with El Capitan.
I suppose I can drag the listings into the appropriate year folder, but that’s an extra step from GS6, and it’s not that easy since there’s nothing that visually distinguishes the template from the resulting listing.
It seems like GS7 has lots of extra steps in the form of multiple unnecessary dialogue boxes (photo deletion, launching, etc).
There also seems to be a total dismissal of revision to existing templates, again, creating more work for the user.
Finally, no, I’m not sweating the $3. I’m acclimating to GS7, and depending on what I find, it may no longer be the listing program I’m going to use.
But thanks for your responses, everything I hear from you feeds into my ultimate decision.
