Refuse orders[edit]

Dwarves can do different things with different types of refuse.

  • k toggles whether dwarves will save or chasm other types of refuse (chunks, rotten food, and worn out items).

Workshop orders[edit]

Many workshops will generate tasks automatically, from this menu you can turn that off for selected workshops.

  • l sets automation options on looms - all thread, dyed thread only, or nothing.
  • d toggles whether clothes maker's shops will be allowed to use undyed cloth.
  • w toggles whether or not looms will automatically generate "Collect Webs" jobs.
  • s toggles whether dwarves will automatically slaughter designated creatures. Note that this job cannot be added manually.
