Re: [1.0.0] Cannot place ghost train if ghost is 90 degrees rotated from rail.

I've definitely noticed the difficulty with ghost placing trains as well, to the point I basically don't do it (outside of blueprints that include them).

Re: [0.18.45] Cursor is not in the Name field after clicking to edit the blueprint book

Maybe you want to tackle this one at the same time? Even though it's not quite the same, it is similarly annoying.

Re: Highlight text on tab selection

I'm not sure I agree that this merge should have moved this into "Ideas and Suggestions" instead of "Bug Reports". The usability of tab+keyboard on these fields is pretty bad compared to what's expected from modern UX, and I think should remain in the bugs forum.

Re: 1.0 Using "Tab" to go from X: field to Y field in blueprint window does not select/mark the Y: value

This is also the case with the dialog boxes to set colors for train stops, trains etc... Tab puts the cursor at the end of the box and adds to the existing number instead of overwriting it.

Re: [1.0.0] Extremely difficult to set absolute grid reference on large blueprints so they line up correctly

Shower thought: What if you could set the reference point in-world by simply placing the blueprint, which would be particularly useful for blueprints that are designed to tile nicely with related blueprints already aligned in-world to some arbitrary point. It could also have some way to specify tha...

[1.0.0] Extremely difficult to set absolute grid reference on large blueprints so they line up correctly

I have a large rail blueprint, which I have used a number of times in my base. I now find myself wanting to make a version of it with landfill underneath, but it needs to align to the same grid as the original blueprints. I've been having an extremely hard time lining them up correctly, for several ...

Re: [1.0.0] Requestor chest for spidertron recipe can overfill chest with LDS's preventing other ingredient delivery.

This is actually a common issue if you do that type of copy paste on fast recipes on beaconed assemblers as well. An 8-beacon + 4 speed module III assembler making Assembling Machine 1 will request 4750 iron plate, 2600 iron gears and 1500 electronic circuits.

[0.18.45] Shift + Scroll Wheel does not scroll one specific blueprint book correctly (but copies of the book work fine)

What did you do? Open blueprint book (called "Grid Megabase") from "my blueprints". Attempt to use Shift+Scroll to scroll within it. What happened? It did not show all the blueprints, instead getting stuck and only displaying the last blueprint from the first nested book until I scrolled back throu...

I am able to type in the name field after clicking in it with t...

Re: Blueprints with entities on top of landfill should not need to be placed more than once when building on water.

Depends what you want; there may be some situations where one of these is better than the other. Like the one I suggested lets you include landfill only under the sections of the blueprint that you want to have built on water, and not on other pieces (like walls and turrets are likely unnecessary o...

Blueprints with entities on top of landfill should not need to be placed more than once when building on water.

Basically landfill ghosts should have entity ghosts on top of them so the blueprint doesn't need to be placed multiple times when building over water.

Allow offshore pumps to be built on landfill

Given that the following are now true: Landfill is a separate tile type than regular ground. Offshore pumps can be built on landfill if the pump is built on shore and then the shore is landfilled in (becoming a Water Well Pump). I would suggest that to simplify pump related blueprints the Offshore P...

I then tried the same with...
