This is what I figured out.

1) if your product has 0 quatity and you set the ‘Stock Availability’ to ‘In Stock’ - DOE NOT WORK! - It automatically resets Stock available to ‘Out of stock’
2) There is no single button saying ‘Don’t Track Stock’ - I don’t know why
3) The way i get mine not to track stock is: in Configure-> inventory set ‘Decrease Stock When Order is Placed’ to NO, then for each product set quantity to 1 and set available to ‘in stock’, this is unfortunately now 2 extra clicks/jobs per product and another thing for clients to remember when adding products, but i cant see any other way to do it ie like all other e-commerce systems this one does not have a global, do not track inventory switch
