0002730: Smelting job only designable from job manager menu
When I go over the smelter and press q-a to order limonite to be smelted, it says "no raw materials available etc etc". I do have limonite ore, so I ordered 5 ore to be smelted from the job manager. And it worked, as now they are smelting it. It can't be designated from the smelter itself.

Building a new smelter fixed the problem, so this is of very low priority. Just a minor annoyance. Now I have two smelters, one that only works from the job manager and another that works normally.
First time seeing this, seems to be quite rare. Haven't tried to reproduce.
No tags attached.

Was the first smelter in a burrow? If so, you're experiencing 0000434.

In fact it is, yeah. Feel free to mark this as a dupe.
