Main Window

GarageSale’s window is where you’ll spent most of your time. It consists of these five principal areas:

Main Window

Section control

In GarageSale you’ll work with these records of these types:

Each of the types can be edited from within its separate section in the main window. Use the section control above the left-hand outline view to switch between the different sections.

Section control


The toolbar of the main window offers frequently used commands. Some of the toolbar buttons are specific to the active section, while others are available from every section.

Among the commonly available buttons are:

Toolbar Icons

Outline View

The outline view on the left side of the main window shows the items (e.g. listing or orders), groups and smart groups available in the currently active section.

The items you select will become available for editing in the Content Area. If you select multiple items by holding down the shift key, or a group containing multiple items, the Content Area will switch into overview mode.

You can create new groups or smart groups in the outline view from the ‘+’-Toolbar button, move items to different groups or to the Trash folder.

Right clicking on entries gives you a context menu offering commands relevant to the currently active section.

Content Area

The content area in the middle part of GarageSale’s main window lets you view or edit the principal properties of the selected item, e.g. a listing’s description in the Listing section or a buyer’s shipping address in the Orders section.

If you select more than a single item in the outline view, the content area will switch into overview mode. This overview mode comes into two flavors:

Image Overview

Table Overview

You can switch between the two modes by clicking on the overview mode control buttons in the top right corner of the content area.

What information is shown in overview mode depends on the selected section.

Inspector Sidebar

The inspector sidebar is a powerful tool that lets you modify and control just about anything that is currently selected in the content area.

The specific inspector controls depend on the highlighted object(s) in the content area and will be further discussed in the following chapters.

You can show/hide the inspector sidebar by clicking the Inspector button in the toolbar.
