This is one of the most annoying things in the game. It seems like there’s the ability to select items in the overall inventory; I know we can hunt up individual Hearthlings. What I wanted was to be able to center on the item I have highlighted in the list. It’s definitely selectable/highlightable. It gets the little gold brackets around it. If either we could activate them from there, or find them from the list, that would be perfect. For example, if I make a new crafting table for one of my professionals, it gets put anywhere. After a little while, that turns into a lot of sorting through plots until I finally find the table. If I find the table.
My first option would be to activate the item from the keep inventory list. Click on it there, the first one of the listed items available becomes the selected thing, you know, with the control options that show up in the bottom left. Then you could plant it, whatever, without the struggle of finding the item.
Second option, and I’m just spitballing here; I know very little about coding, would be the option from the list to move-to and highlight the first item of that type in inventory. If you have that item already selected, it just moves to the next one, just like clicking Hearthlings out of the similar list. Granted, Hearthlings don’t stack in the inventory list, so there’s a pretty big difference, but… these two things were what slowed me down the most.
