0000372: Soap maker workshop does not have the "make soap" option; via manager works OK
I have a soap maker's workshop, with tallow and lye barrels in a nearby stockpile.

However, the workshop lists no tasks at all under the 'add task' screen. Yes, I do have the necessary inputs available.

If I add a global "Make soap" task via the job manager (u-m-q), then it gets allocated to the workshop and successfully produces some soap. (Mmmm, donkey soap.)

I have to add: not only it doesn't have the "make soap" option in the workshop, even after the soap is made it is not hauled away and stays in the workshop forever.

I dismantled the workshop and all the soap was laying around. After some time I looked and it was no longer there, so maybe the dwarfs hauled it away somewhere, but I can't find it in any of my stockpiles. I even designated a stockpile specificaly for soap, the dwarfs put one wooden bin there, but it stays empty.

This one is fixed in 31.02, can someone close it please?
2010-04-11 17:36   
It wasn't fixed in .02 for me.
2010-04-11 18:51   
I saw this occur in .02 as well. The first time I had the materials available I saw the option to make soap but it disappeared in a flash and never came back.

This actually occurs in .03 aswell, not to mention the fat relation happening to .03 too.

This one still exists in .08 for me
