Original Description from Ghost In Hand

When a last held item is placed (either by you or by your construction robots) normally your hand would be emptied forcing you to pick that item again. This mod changes this behavior, so that when you run out of items, a held item is replaced with its ghost.

This solves a very annoying problem, when trying to build something while within logistic network and bots are resupplying the item slowly, so that every few seconds you run out of that item, it gets removed from your hand and you have to pick it again:

See high quality video.

This was reported as bug 68557, but unfortunately the developers consider it an intended behaviour - to give a clear feedback that your item has run out.

Additional the opposite problem is also resolved by this mod.
When an item becomes available through crafting finished or logistic request delivery then a held ghost is replaced with its item.
