Re: [0.15.5] No confirmation prompt on deleting a blueprint book

nonetheless, I think it shouldn't be that easy to delete a blueprint book. I have already lost 2 blueprint books with all my blueprints just because I find the interface unintuitive, and I delete the blueprint book when I'm only trying to delete the blueprint. I found a very elegant solution to the issue : I don't use books any more. Problem solved.

I've lost blueprints too by accident, it's not just books. There really should be an undo there or better a trash can with deleted blueprints.

Blueprint Delete Confirmation Dialog

Post by akulla »

TL;DR
Make a confirmation dialog box before deleting a blueprint/blueprint book.
What ?
This comes from me accidentally deleting a blueprint book, thinking that the delete button would apply to a blueprint I was holding, instead of the whole book. Admittedly, the hovertext does say "destroy blueprint book", but I was in a hurry and missed it.
Why ?
Blueprint books contain a lot of work and it would be nice if such a destructive action had a guard rail for the user.

At least a prompt for deleting a blueprint or book from a quickbar shortcut. It is not obvious what will happen from the quickbar.
