When grabbing a single item, player doesn't have to press Enter or Space to confirm picking up. Shouldn't hauling a single item work the same way?

Agreed, less keyboard jockeying is always nice.

Agree. Another similar thing which bugs me (too, and I thought fits this thread) is the "confirm-cancel" when pressing escape and only a single item is selected for dropping.

Or couple...

Or three...

Actually I'd do well without the whole feature. If sometimes I have some complicated selection accidentally cancelled, well boohoo. I'd still live my life with fever total keypresses than having to affirm cancel every single time.  :P

@Buoidda: does it relate to this (solved in 3.63) bug report?
I’m not sure I understood you about repeated confirmation, only place I can think that happens is when Discarding a stack of varied items.

I’d say the confirmation is for picking up multiple items, turns in combat matter. Disrobing and wearing multiple items in a single go is also practical when taking a sauna bath, going to swim and so on.

you forgot the link i guess.

I'm talking about whenever there is an inventory selection (picking, dropping, moving etc), pressing ESC results in "You have some items selected. Are you sure to cancel?" (Even if there's only one item selected. )

I think people doing combat are careful with their keypresses anyway, so I rarely need to cancel anything during combat. Ofc this could be automatically active when aggressive things are nearby. Or enabled in setup.

But most of the time this feature just breaks my rapid flow of keypresses and confuses me. It's not like it's easy to press ESC at the edge of keyboard by accident ???

Neat, simple and reasonable suggestion. We’ll see about adding this.
