Example: I have a stockpile of fences. Clear on the other side of camp (couple of screens away) I want to put down a long line of fences, but must manually pan the screen back and forth (from stockpile to fence row) dozens of time to get a fence line laid down. Way too tedious. I just gave up.
Solution would be to let you repeatedly use the ghost image of the fence to continually lay fence down until you’re out of stock. Then, let the townfolk lay the actual fences. This can be applied to everything from chairs to beds to tables, etc.
