Lightbulb Split Stacks into Singles Quicker

Hello,

I know that in the game you can split a stack into singles by holding Shift and dragging the whole stack to an empty space, then select one, then select ok. But this is a long arduous task, if you're wanting to send out a single free item to all of your kin-mates as a mailer. I think this is a great opportunity to simplify the inventory management by making a single button in the Shift-drag menu which would say something along the lines of Split stack into singles, or ones.... The split stack would occupy any free space in the inventory bags, and then you can mail stuff out much much quicker.

If anyone is willing to look into this, or has an opinion on this, please leave a comment down below!

I do not think it will be possible to make this part of the game UI. It might be possible to create a plugin that would do it or bake it into a backpack plugin like HugeBag based on https://www.lotrointerface.com/wiki/PerformItemDrop

That would be awesome.

Hyoss is correct that we can't override the popup menus. Unfortunately, PerformItemDrop will not work for this either. All PerformItemDrop does is allows us to move an entire stack within the backpack OR split a stack by popping up the built-in dialog that would have been popped up by simply right dragging the stack - it still requires user interaction to actually split. It does not allow us to programmatically set a quantity to split without user input so it does not work for the OPs problem of creating multiple splits automatically.

PerformShortcutDrop doesn't work either because the only way to drop a different quantity would be to create a new shortcut with the same generic itemID which would create a shortcut with a single instance of the item - the problem is, if you try to drop that shortcut you get an error because the actual item does not exist (it's not seen as one of the items from the stack).

So, there is no way to perform this with the current API (and that isn't likely to change at this point).

See and I was wondering how "split" set to "true" would decide on the quantities to split. Too bad, I was also hoping for a way to do "unmerge" :-)
