Can't get my Hearthlings to promote

I started a new game but I don’t know how to get them to promote. I changed their jobs and the saw appears in my inventory, but it’s not a physical thing. The Hearthlings aren’t bugged - they still chop down trees.

sometimes you have to set up a stockpile for them to actually identify that the item exists.

I had this issue once with a sword. i had to make a new one and then that was recognized but not sure how you would fix that since its the carpentry saw. They dont need a saw to cut down trees, the saw is to make a carpenter.

That worked! Thank you!

hey there @Gimmepickles92 welcome to the discourse :smile:

glad to hear that it was just the saw not being in storage :slight_smile: i’ll mark this as resolved.
