Any way to cancel all crafting in your inventory?

Post by garath »

Looking at the list of controls, it seems to show Shift Left Click is the default key to cancel all crafting. But when I try to do this it only cancels a single item or maybe a single row of crafting. Is there any way to cancel *everything*? For example, let's say I right click on a fast inserters five or six times to start making 25 -30 of them. Then, let's say i'm running around the factory and think I need some transport belt so I start making some of that. Then, I see I need some steel boxes and start crafting them. Then, I want to make a combat shotgun but want it NOW. So, I start shift left clicking on individual rows. Five minutes and fifty clicks later, I have manually cancelled everything I was making and can start on the combat shotgun. Is there some easier way to stop crafting everything? Thanks!

(or it might be Alt Click. Typing this at work so don't have the game in front of me at the moment.)

as of currently there is no feature like this but i do agree it the uses of canceling all would be great as many a times i have over crafted many items and as such i believe you are right to want to have this be implemented. best i can say for now is Shift click as fast as possible.

Right click the icons that show up on the lower left corner.

You should check your settings then. Hold rightclick is the "default key" to cancel/remove almost everything.

I think you are missing the point that he is trying to cancel the entire queue with one click.

Then frankly the title should be "Any way to cancel all crafting in your inventory?"

Changed the title in your OP :).
Also : no direct way, but I'm sure some console guru will give us a console command that can do this :).

Shift+left clicking on the crafting queue on the bottom left does the job.

oh my gosh, this times 1000. Anyone know how to do so on the Nintendo Switch? I craft in bulk, especially to maximize my productivity when I am doing other stuff, and I can’t tell you how many times I have wished for this.
