Bug with submitting ME job in POS

I was trying to start a ME job today in my Research Lab and its asking me to submit input location for material.

However as this job does not require any material it does not give you an option to chose a hangar.

So you are not able to submit a job as you are not able to chose a material input location.

Don't know if this is a known issue and there is a way around it already.

If it is I would appreciate you share it with me.

1. Check that you are really doing a ME job. Click another button, then click the ME button again.

2. Make sure the BPO is located in the hangar of the station, and not the cargohold of a ship.

BPO is in the right location since I just finished one cycle of ME research and wanted to start on another one.

Anyways it seems problem has solved it self and I was able to submit ME job today.

It seems they break POS code more and more with every update lately...

Don't worry. POS (bonuses) are going away next month.

Then in our August release we will remove the bonuses from Reprocessing Arrays, Assembly Arrays, and Starbase Labs.

This means that starting in August, Starbase Reprocessing Arrays will only provide a 50% refining yield, Starbase Assembly Arrays will not provide any material or time bonuses to manufacturing jobs, and Starbase Labs will not provide any time bonuses to research, copy, or invention jobs.

These structures will continue to operate for some time longer and any jobs started before the August patch will complete with the bonuses intact.
