my mind is /
a big hunk of irrevocable nothing which touch and taste and smell /
and hearing and sight keep hitting and chipping with sharp fatal /
in an agony of sensual chisels i perform squirms of chrome and ex /
-ecute strides of cobalt /
nevertheless i /
feel that i cleverly am being altered that i slightly am becoming /
something a little different, in fact /
hereupon helpless i utter lilac shrieks and scarlet bellowings.

The Shopalicious HUD
Setting and Rating a Lookmark
To set a lookmark, simply click the Set Lookmark button on your HUD. At all times, your HUD displays what you're looking at. This will be used as name for the lookmark when you set one. Some vendor boards don't display their contents, so you might want to focus on a rezzed piece of clothing on a hanger instead to get a more meaningful name. Alternatively, you can change the name of a lookmark after you set it by typingin local chat (you'll see these instructions in local chat after setting a lookmark).
After you set a lookmark, the first button on the HUD will change to the rating mode: . If you like you can tell how much you like this item (it might help you later to decide if you want to get it). Also, you can tell Shopalicious if you're getting a demo or if you're purchasing the item.
This can help you, e.g., filter out only demo lookmarks if you go back later to purchase the items which you got demos for.
After setting a lookmark, its URL is printed in local chat. Copy it if you'd like to share it on your blog. When clicking a lookmark URL on a blog page, the map will open, offering to teleport to the lookmark location, and to view the lookmark, once arrived at the location.
Note that lookmarks are saved per-sim, i.e., the lookmarks you saved in a sim will only be viewable when you are in that sim.
Viewing a Lookmark
To view and cycle among lookmarks, click the Focus Previous/Next Lookmark buttons on your HUD. The HUD will display the name of the current lookmark and the lookmark's rating. You can interact with the rating button if you want to change the rating.
If nothing happens when you click the buttons, hit the Escape key a couple of times to release the manual camera override (if you cam around, the manual camera override becomes active, which takes precedence over the scripted camera).
To stop viewing lookmarks and switch back to the normal viewer mode, click the green bar below the previous/next buttons. This will release the scripted camera and put the viewer in the regular camera mode again.
Shopalicious has a filter option if you only want to view lookmarks with specific ratings (e.g., to only view your heart-rated lookmarks, or your demos).
By default, the filter function is deactivated; activate it by clicking the Menu button , and then selecting Setup > Show/Hide Filter.
The Filter button has six sub-buttons. The top four correspond to the ratings, and activating one or more of them will tell Shopalicious to only display lookmarks which have this rating.
E.g., if you only want to see only the lookmarks with the heart rating, make sure only the heart button is active on the filter. Or if you want to see the items you've got demos for that you like (that have a star rating), activate the "Demo" and the "Star" buttons (but not the others).
The "All" button activates all ratings, and "None" clears them all.
If all ratings are selected, all lookmarks you saved are viewable. If no ratings are selected, you can only view the lookmarks you haven't rated.
Deleting a Lookmark
If you're viewing a lookmark, you'll see a small red button in the bottom right corner below the prev/next lookmark buttons . Press this button to delete the currently focused lookmark.
Alternatively, click the Menu button and select Del. Curr. Lm.
Click the History button to view the last 20 places at which you've set lookmarks. The list displayed in local chat includes links which let you teleport back to the location.
There are several ways to share lookmarks:
If you're shopping with friends, Shopalicious helps you exchange your ideas and opinions by making it simple to see what your friends are looking at. This is described in the sections below:
Setting Shopping Buddies
Once the friends you're going shopping with are all in the same sim as you, you can set them as your shopping buddies for your shopping tour.
Do that by clicking the Menu button and then selecting Set Buddies and adding all of your friends.
The HUD will display your current shopping buddies.
Whenever you see something you'd like your friends to have a look at, click the Share button , and they'll have the option to look at what you're seeing or save it as a lookmark immediately (provided they also have the Shopalicious HUD).
Tracking Someone's Camera
If your friends don't have the Shopalicious HUD, you can still ask them if you could track their camera. Click the Track Camera button and pick the person whose camera you'd like to track. The person will need to grant the permission to let you track their camera. Until they do, the HUD will display that it is waiting for the permission, and will start following the camera of your friend once they grant the permission.
Note that the camera transitions won't be completely smooth. The camera angle updates once a second.
If you don't want to track your friends camera any longer, just click the Track Camera button again.
If the tracking doesn't start, although it says so, hit the Escape key a couple of times to release the manual camera override.
When you're looking at another avatar (or yourself), the first HUD button changes to the "Fashion Syp" mode , and it will display who are you looking at.
If you click the Fashion Spy button, Shopalicious scans what the person you're looking at is wearing and will display a "style card" once it's done gathering the information.
The style card contains the name of the item and it's creator and, more interestingly, either a link to the item's Marketplace page or to the creator's Marketplace shop if the item couldn't be found.
Also, if a lookmark is available for an inworld location where you can get the item, it will give you the lookmark URL. As usual, clicking it will display the map so can teleport to the location and offer you to focus the camera on the lookmark once you arrive.
