  • What are the numbers in the middle and how to hide them?
    • Blue = How many you have
    • Green = How many you can make from materials you have.
    • Yellow = How many you can make by crafting the reagents.
    • Orange = How many you can make if you purchase materials from a vendor.
    • Purple = How many you can make using materials on your alts.
      Right-click on the bag icon above the numbers.
  • How to search in the item name only? - Start your search phrase with exclamation mark: !ink
  • How to search in Auction House? - Alt+Click on shopping list
  • How to retrieve items from bank? - Turn on "Display shopping list at banks"
  • How to turn off Skillet temporarily? - Shift+Click your profession button/link. It also works for View All in your Guild Tab.
  • How to use Enchanting Vellum? - Right Click on Process/Create/Create All button. You create only 1 enchanted vellum, repeat to create more
  • How to paste a recipe in the chat? - double click on the recipe list

    Is there any possible way to stop the que process based on your skill number. Ex: I want to make 10 Truesilver bars or until I get to 250 skill which ever comes first. So if I'm at 245 in skill and each truesilver bar gives me one point it will stop me at 250 after I've made 5 bars. It would be even more swell if there was a way to say either 250 skill or Turn Yellow - Stop crafting.

    I don't even know if it's possible, but think of the wonderful possibilities when leveling alts.

    thank you for an excellent addon :D

    im having a problem with custom sorting. as an enchanter and jewelcrafter, i want to filter out all the pre-cata recipes. this is easy to do by simply deleting the category the recipes are in, or deleting them individually. the issue comes from when i learn new recipes. these new ones do not show up in my custom interface unless i select "blizzard" or "flat". from there i dont know how to copy the recipe from the blizzard group, to my custom group. i've tried copying and pasting, but that didnt work :x any advice?

    First, thank you for a great addon!

    I have a small question, is it possible to get a button to post everything in the shoppinglist as a whisper or in party to my banker?

    I can't find any information about the "Grouping" dropdown. I have, along with the "flat" and "Blizzard" groups, one for each of the toons I use it on. They have a lock icon next to them. I can not delete any of the groups. I select one I want to delete, choose "unlock" from the context menu, the lock icon disappears, but I can't delete it. I can "rename" the groups, but within 30 seconds or less, the group I renamed is joined by a brand new group of the name I just renamed. So if I had...
    ... and I renamed Jane to be "burt", about 30 sec later I would have...
    ... see my problem?

    I only use Blizzard or Flat. The rest are clutter and I want to get rid of them permanently. Any suggestions?

    nickyjean: I added such functionality in latest version. Just Right Click on Create/Create All/Process

    Suggestion: For enchanting, it is so cumbersome to open my back and click on the vellum to enchant a scroll. There is an addon: OneClickEnchantScroll that makes enchanting a lot simpler even with a que. It doesn't seem to mesh with this one. But if there was a way to enable the addon to work with this one, that would be awesome.

    Have come back to Skillet with the release of Cata - love the latest version. My main is a Scribe - I find that because you can trade in inks, it can distort the number of items craftable when looking at vendor / bank etc. Is there any way to make it calculate how many you can craft with actual inks available and not potentially traded inks?

  • Avatar of yossa yossa Jan 05, 2011 at 08:53 UTC - 0 likes

    I just did some testing and to retrieve items from bank you have to turn on "Display shopping list at banks" option. To search at Auction House you have to Alt+Click item in your shopping list.
