[Resolved] Using items without the awkward equip

    Hi all I'm new to the game so maybe I just haven't discovered how to do it properly.

    I have a codex for example, in my inventory.

    Do I really need to:
    1 go into the inventory
    2 pop the item into a quickbar slot
    3 equip the item from the quickbar
    4 use the item

    So for example if I want to just read a few blueprints I have to do these 4 steps every time? I hope there's a quick-read or quick use for things like this, probably I've just not looked hard enough - if it's not my fault then please consider this a feature request.

    EDIT: This is entirely a mechanic regarding single-use disposable items like blueprints. So much effort to just use a few of them - ctrl clicking or something would be more player friendly.

    Nope. All you need to do is pick up the item on your cursor and then click it anywhere outside the inventory. This way you can read a codex, learn a blueprint, eat food, or use a bandage (though that last one you should probably have on the hotbar anyway).
