Let's say i need to switch my rails to blasters in space. Use mobile depot i need to:
1) Open fitting window
2) repeat 4 times: hover mouse over gun, in menu choose 'unload', accept message about group
3) select guns in cargo, drop into fitting window
4) group guns to make 2 groups (i use 2 groups because ...)
5) close fitting window

Wanted to ask: if there is something i can do to make it faster?
Thanks

cannot: first drag from the cell makes ammo out, only after you can drag gun itself

Thats what I do. Easier than clicking through menues.
Ok, no big improvement.

well... you gave me an idea: to check drag-drop outside of fitting window. Yes, this way all the ammo can be unloaded with 1 operation and guns can be put into cargohold easier.
Good improvement
Thanks

refitting in space is indeed a bit cumbersome, however it is also quite powerful.

I have empty slots on my thingy, so I can drag and drop from there. my inventory sits right next to the thingy (I should really know what that's called) so I have short drags to/from inventory to slots.

Seriously. The horror of having to spend more than like two seconds to get all the loot. Wah.

As an alternative to drag and drop you could also right click "Unload to Cargo" to get the ammo out of the way.

I often wish for a 'strip all' button and ability to fit multiple selection.

Better than having to go back to station/pos each time to change fitting.

unload the ammo in space
ungroup the guns in space

regroup the guns in space and just use one group

Depot is a great thing for EVE. I'm so glad they did it.

Has anyone tried the 'saved fittings' feature with a depot?
I will next time I'm out.
