Except add-ons are available. Not so here.

I think I am going to have to just pull my mats back out of the new storage and put them back in legacy bank for now. The default sorting and scrolling is just obnoxious

The mats tab could use some basic sort and filter options, such as skill type, material type, grade, and quality.

Also why the list view for mats tab when everything else inventory related is a grid, a long scrolling list is just annoying.

Agree, especially for us OCD types.

However, by changing the quality on the diamond sorter, you only have to move white items by hand and can right click stuff back into the legacy bank if it is green or better. Thank god for this work around.

no the outrage is that it's considerably less useful than leaving mats in legacy bank....

with legacy bank you had proper sorting, at a glance knowledge of relative mat levels, and it didn't hide relevant information from you, randomly reset your view, or force you use it.

literally the only useful thing thing that the new mat storage does is free up other cargo bay space... that's it. everything else it makes more of a PITA
If it moves, shoot it.
if it stops moving... shoot it again.

doesn't work, mission mats and world nodes are auto placed directly into mat storage regardless of setting

Which is why it only gets used for Grade 11 materials in my instance.

That's the first thing I tried. Now I just have to manually pull them out after gathering, collected materials from both gathering and missions completely bypass the inventory system.
