Presently, one can set an object for sale in either the build/edit floater or the Object Profile panel. Both of these have the same controls, and share the problem in
STORM-1453: that the item is for sale as soon as you check the For Sale box, which is before you have a chance to set the terms of sale (whether you're selling a Copy, the Contents, or the Original, and the price). They also both have the problem in VWR-24118 - setting the item for sale modifies the default Touch behavior of the object itself, which may or may not be what the user intended.
This issue tracks a project to replace the set of sales-related fields in both of the object floaters with just a 'Sell Object' button, which would then bring up a wizard-style dialog similar to the land sales floater that gives you a sequence of decisions to make:
- Selling Price
- Sale mode (Copy, Content, Original)
- Whether or not Touch is modified to the default Buy action (my personal feeling is that this should be the default only when the previous choice is Content - anything else ends up with the new owner having an object whose default touch is Buy, which they sometimes won't be allowed to sell)
- Confirm the next-owner permissions
The dialog would have a Cancel button and Sell button at the bottom, which would either discard or commit all of the above.
