I noticed that while at a store, there is an option to "Sell Trash".

store screen

I figure it will be similar to Kingdoms of Amalur in that I can mark items as junk and sell them all in one simple action.

Is this what it means to "Sell Trash?" How can I mark an item as trash?

It doesn't seem like it's an option in the inventory screen or the inspection screen.

At least on the PC version, you can mark an item as a Favorite or as Trash by moving your mouse to the right side of the item where a star or X will appear. (The hidden hover areas appear vertically above each other.) Clicking on these will mark them as either a favorite or as trash respectively.

A favorite item cannot can still be sold but has a nice marker on it so it stands out better. Trash items can be sold in bulk at stores (by going to the Buy menu and pressing Delete on PC, clicking Left Stick on the console), so you can get rid of your trash items easily at the store.

The console versions or using a gamepad will have dedicated buttons to toggle these settings.

Using a gamepad or playing the Xbox 360 version, you can toggle these settings pressing the Left Stick.

gamepad enabled

I imagine the PS3 version will use L3 to toggle the settings.

It's a shame that there doesn't seem to be a shortcut to do this on the PC version. –  Jeff Mercado Sep 18 '12 at 9:21
    
This seems to be buggy on the PC version. After marking items, scrolling up/down on the list seems to unmark them. –  NickSuperb Sep 19 '12 at 3:35

@Nick there's multiple scroll bugs on PC, sometimes hovering will select an item above/below your cursor. Exit and reopen the menu and they're fixed –  Ben Brocka Sep 21 '12 at 15:37

A faster way to bring back the icons after scrolling (if you recently added them) would be to change the sort order and then back. This still keeps you in the "backpack view" while restoring the icons. –  Jeff Mercado Oct 7 '12 at 19:27

@Nick: Correction, they've almost fixed it. The first item in the list doesn't keep its state. Everything else seems to work. –  Jeff Mercado Oct 11 '12 at 3:50
