Remove Pens from PDA with Ctrl-Click

Recommended Posts

You can remove IDs inserted into a PDA with Alt-Click, which is really nice. However, I find myself needing to remove a pen far more often than an ID (and I assume this is the case with most people). I suggest adding a new shortcut to remove pens in the form of Ctrl-Click.

Coding difficulty: Probably low. I'm not a coder, but this (I assume) just involves some copy-paste of whatever code allows IDs to be removed, with changes to account for pens and Ctrl-Click.

Thoughts?

Protip: You put the pen behind your ear so you can retrieve it quickly when you need to use it.  Just 'equip' the pen to you ear slot.

I know, and that's good, but Ctrl-Click would forego the need to open your equipment tab and free up that ear for anything else (granted, I don't know if anyone ever uses both ear slots).

Yea, sorry, I didn't meant to come off like I was being dismissive of your idea, it would definitely be a nice QoL change. Just informing anyone who might not know.

Like the idea, definitely would make any job remotely requiring paperwork bearable instead of having to go to the object tab and going through that process
