Quick Item Search is the quick and easy way to retrieve items deep inside your inventory, or from the logistics network. Simply hit Control+F to bring up the search interface. You can navigate the interface completely with keyboard shortcuts, or by clicking on the item you want to retrieve.

Items on gray squares are in your inventory, and blue ones are in the logistics network. There are several different "actions" that you can take on an item, depending on how you select it.

Additionally, the mod adds a "quick-trash all" hotkey that will reduce all items in your inventory to their minimum request amounts. This makes it painless to clean your inventory after a long building session or biter liberation parade.

How-to

Hit Control+F and type all or part of the item you're looking for. If you wish to use keyboard shortcuts, press enter, use the arrow keys to navigate, then press enter again to select a result. Alternatively, just click a result.

You can take several different actions based on how you select an item:

Inventory (gray)
- Enter or Click: Put the item into your cursor.
- Shift+Enter or Shift+Click: Edit your personal logistic request for that item.
- Control+Enter or Control+Click: Quick-trash that item to its minimum request amount.
Logistics (blue)
- Enter or Click: Edit your personal logistic request for that item.
- Shift+Enter or Shift+Click: Place the item into your cursor, or if you don't have it, place a ghost of the item into your cursor.
Unavailable (red)
- Enter or Click: Place a ghost of the item into your cursor.
- Shift+Enter or Shift+Click: Edit your personal logistic request for that item.
Map Editor (gray)
- Enter or Click: Spawn the item into your cursor or take it from your inventory.
- Shift+Enter or Shift+Click: Spawn the item into your cursor or take it from your inventory. Create an infinity inventory filter for a stack of that item.

For every "set stack" action, if you are in cheat mode and don't have that item, it will be spawned into your cursor instead of setting a ghost.

To use the quick-trash-all functionality, simply use the hotkey (default Control + Shift + T. This will search through your requests and temporarily set all of them to the minimum amount. When the item is reduced to that amount, the request is reset back to what it was before. This allows you to carry around as much of an item as you want, but when you want to clean your inventory, simply hit the hotkey and that item will be reduced / removed to what it normally is.

The mod includes a "quick-trash-all excludes list" in the mod settings. This setting allows you to "ignore" items when using the hotkey (i.e. personal equipment). See the setting itself for more information.

All keyboard shortcuts can be customized to your liking.
