    How many times have you done it?You collect the goods from one factory/workshop to complete a quest during events,but sometimes you click on the factory next to it also.Imagine you want to collect a 3h production,but you accidentally collect a 2d production also....
    So how about a "locking" mechanism?you can right click a factory during production and choose "lock".When the production is done,you cannot collect it,until you manually "unlock" it(right click on the factory again).

    Moving the screen on PC wiped out 2 x2day and 2x 1day goods and 1x 1 day tools in one mouse movement earlier so I am all for your idea.

    Others will say disconnect the road will do the same, but with very limited space that is not always possible.

    I like this idea, but I imagine the devs would cringe at adding this as a new feature.

    There has been a suggestion by UlyssesBlue to have different commands for moving the map and collecting things. This idea has been archived, you can find it here. I would prefer that solution, but your suggested locking mechanism would be quite an improvement over the current system.

    I don't know why I missed the first post, but it's such a good idea and surely pretty easy to implement. We already have a system where clicking an icon switches the city from "move building" mode to "move city/collect" mode. It would be the same thing.

    This is a significant problem that has been ongoing for a while. I will support any solution that addresses the issue.
