Combination functions:

Keys Function
Left + ⇧ Shift Transfer the clicked item (or single stack) between opened inventories / quickly equip equipment
Left + Ctrl Transfer all of the clicked items of same type between opened inventories

Controller (gamepad)

Old Controler Keybinds were removed in Patch_0.8.0.5, so now you should be able to properly set up a custom controller configuration without any issues.[EX]

The game natively supports controller input. However, without Steam compatibility layers, there is no customization available (unless config files are edited) and the functionality is very limited, making it effectively impossible to play the game normally.[EA]

These keybinds may not apply for the Steam Deck, as it does use the Steam compatibility layers.[EA]

In-game calculator

The Quick Search in-game N also serves as a simple calculator. The following operators are supported:

  • .: Decimal
  • + - * /: Arithmetic
  • ^: Exponentiation / Power of
  • %: Remainder
  • ( ): Parenthesis
  • sqrt( ): Square root

Other roots are possible using fractional exponentiation such as 8^(1/3)=2. The calculator enforces the order of operations.[3]
