moving multiples of same item to/from inventory-stashes
Probably a dumb question-and search really did not help.
When you are moving items or trading or whatever is there a way to copy *ALL* of the same item at once. Dragging and dropping each and every box of ammo (for instance) in a trade or stash screen is a pain.
I know right clicking allows you to "drop all" (not when your in a trade screen though) \\Rhought maybe there was some key combo that would allow you to drag all of a particular item, at once?
You don't have to drag and drop items, just double click and it it'll transfer one box at a time. Also note that the 'run' key is bound to the "take all" command, so if you want to empty a container / corpse you can do so very quickly.
It seems to me the real problem is not emptying a stash quickly, which can be done by "take all" or sprint key.
The real problem is when you want to do it the other way around. It is a real pain to double click dozens of time to sell some ammo.
Or lets say you stashed up on 5.45x39 rounds to carry to Clear Sky base. Unfortunately you picked it up peace by peace from dead NPC's. this means a box may be a mare 8 rounds. In order to transfer this from a stash with many other items is a pain. You will have to double click quite a bit.
So is there something I missed or a simple trick to get around this. Or must we simply click as if there is no tomorrow
No, ammo boxes stay in the capacity you pick them up as, so if you find 3 dead stalkers carrying 10 rounds each that's 3 boxes, not one.
There is a way to 'amalgamate' ammo via script, which will reduce the number of clicks when transferring large amounts of ammo. Note that this will affect all those 'bring item' quests which remove ammo by box regardless of whether it's a full box or not.

FWIW SoC is even worse: if the stash contains enough items to need a scrollbar it will scroll up every time you pick a piece from the bottom. One way to avoid the scrollbar is to use a separate stash for small things (like ammo) and another one for larger items (weapons and suits), but you must still double-click or drag every box of ammo.
I often just drop ammo on the ground, at least in places where NPCs don't go often.
