New to all the wizzy stuff you can do when selling on ebay so apologies for the daft questions....

How do you get to do lovey coloured type, bullet points etc when listing something? When I clisk preview it comes out as one long block of text even if I've typed it in with line spaces etc. Would like to make my discription more colourful and attractive....

No artistic ebay queens out there then?

when you enter the text, make sure it is in Standard mode (there are two tabs: standard and html). YOu can then highlight your text and change size and colour.

thanks sarahlou. Once you've highlighted the copy is there a drop bar or something that you access?

Do you use the 'sell your item' form on ebay or do you use turbo lister.
I use turbo lister and all the stuff you need is on a tool bar above ther text (just like using microsoft word).
Also if you use turbo lister then Listing Designer is free - coloured borders etc.
Hope that makes sense.

Once you highlighted the text, there is an 'A' button for the text size, a colour palette for the colours and there should be a B key for bold and an I key for italic.
