When I have added an item to the cart, if I use the Add More button to increase the number of items in the cart, the Qty number in the same box does not change to reflect the new number, (although the "# in the bag" does change) and when i go to checkout, the new number is reflected accurately.

The Qty # looks by design to be an editable number, and in fact can be edited by a user, but any change is not reflected if one goes to checkout. This is confusing.

From my perspective, the Qty # should not be editable but just a display of what the current qty is, and when it is added to the bag, then it should be replaced with the bag and words "1 in the bag, which changes when the bag is added to. Or the other option which is to have the text next to the bag stay "in the bag" and have the Qty # above it reflect the changing number of items when someone clicks on Add More - but again, make the Qty # so it is not editable.

The current behavior is correct and it was designed in a such way on purpose. Please let me describe why:

- The "Qty" input field isn't related to a number of a products in a cart or a number of available products. This field defines how many products will be added to a cart when you press the "Add to Cart" or "Add more" buttons. Thus it's editable and is equal to "1" by default.

- The number of items of a product in a cart appears on the cart page or on product details("# in the bag"). This number can be changed on a cart page, just change the value in the input boxes.

- The number of available items will be shown near the "Qty" field, if the product is limited, i.e. has quantity assigned. If the product is "unlimited", there will be no such info.
You can change this in the Ecwid control panel, the "Stock Control" section in product details.
