Hotkeys for Quantity transfer? X3AP

Post by Truthowl » Sat, 29. Dec 18, 23:58

When dealing with buying/selling or just transferring items/resources I'm referring to quantity increases/decreases.

For instance in the stock market when buying shares. How do you increase the number of shares you wish to buy? I know we can use the mouse to click in the box to jump to a quantity. I also know we can use the left and right arrow keys to increase or decrease the quantity. But are there other keys? For instance is there a key to choose Max/Min quantity?

I've watched several YouTubers(YTers) play and I've seen them appear to get to the quantity part then suddenly their quantity jumps to max. I've also seen a YTer go to quantity and the increments they are increasing/decreasing by is an exact quantity per arrow hotkey press. For instance they increased quantity by 1 million with each press until they got to 20 mill. How the heck do they do this? Mine always starts by incrementing by 1 and if I hold the arrow key it slowly increases to 5 then 10 per tick.

You can press " 10 " then with arrow key you change volume by 10.
You can press " 100 " -> volume 100.
" 1000 " -> volume 1000.
" 2500 " -> volume 2500 .....

Excellant!!!!!! :) This is exactly what I was looking for. So I just type the quantity I wish to increment by then use arrow keys(<- ->) to increase/decrease by that amount. or i cn Min/Max using Home and End.

Thank you both so very much. This will help me a lot!!

Though note that when you do use numeric input, it remembers the value until you exit out of the transaction. To reset it back to 1, you can press Backspace.

This is weird/funny. In my game if I wait too long to increase/decrease quantity, once I've numeric entered,, or click Ok to confirm, it automatically reverts to 1
