Text Snippets

In GarageSale you can create pre-defined text snippets for your item description and the “Condition Details” field. This way you don’t have to re-type the same text parts again and again.

Creating New Text Snippets

To create new text snippets open the Text Snippets window by selecting “Show Text Snippets” from the “Window” menu. Here you can easily edit existing text snippets or create new ones by hitting the “+” button. You can insert plain text or HTML code.
