Summary0001216: "take from stockpile" will not move items out of barrels/bins
DescriptionIf you create a stockpile, set it to not allow any barrels/bins, and then set it to take from another stockpile that does have barrels/bins, the dwarves will not move any of the items that are already in container.
Steps To Reproducecreate a stockpile that uses containers (food, finished goods, etc)
allow some items to be placed in it
create a second stockpile of the same type, set max bins/barrels to 0
set the second stockpile to take from the first
only individual items will be moved from the original stockpile to the second, dwarves will ignore any that are already in a container.

derp, well I found several other reports on issues related to 'take from stockpile'. I don't know if this one is unique, because 'take from stockpile' -does- function for me in general, just not in the circumstances i posted, whereas the other reports seem to relate to it not working at all.

I set up an outside refuse stockpile as a workaround for the lack of rotting, and while many dwarves seem to be trying to move remains and rotted plants to the outside stockpile, they're largely dancing around.

This should probably go to a suggestion discussion instead. The general take-from behavior has been fixed for 0.31.07, but leaving things in barrels/bins is important to stop take-from orders from making a mess. Instead of using max bins/barrels, there ought to be a better way to move specific goods out into a destination pile while still allowing the destination pile to have bins. It might involve a dwarf coming along with an additional bin though. The setups can get pretty complicated, if you are trying to take, say, a general crafts pile and divide out each type of craft by type into different destination piles, while having them all land in bins cleanly.
