Late game Tinker has more than 6 items but still needs to keep bottle and soul ring in Stash in order to heal quicker in Fountain. However, to do this I need to swap out my current items with the stashed items quickly.

What's the best way to do this? In this Dendi's Tinker, he seems able to do it without having the mouse over the item, so I guess there must be a hotkey somehow.

You can't shift queue an item swap because of the mechanic of the stash (you can interact with it only when you are in the fountain area). The best way to do it quickly is to swap it by drag & dropping the item you want to swap in your inventory on the one you want in your stash (or the other way arround). This is the way Dendi does it.

However, you can shift-queue to drop the item from your inventory (by drag and dropping them to the ground) while you are teleporting to the fountain. If you do this with your Dagon or Scythe of Vyse you'll regenerate your mana quickly and manage your time at the fountain better.

And by "the command" you mean: click on item in slot and drag them over the item in stash? –  Heisenberg Aug 20 at 18:31
    
@Heisenberg Just tested in Dota 2 and edited my answer it seems you can't shit queue this command Dendi is just really used to doing it once he arrives at the fountain. –  WizLiz Aug 20 at 18:52
    
In the video the mouse action really does not line up with the item swap though, don't you think? –  Heisenberg Aug 20 at 19:14

Just be careful of dropping items on the ground, or things like this can happen. youtube.com/watch?v=C2EI_zZNhM4 –  StingyJack Aug 21 at 16:57

Shitqueue? :D @Heisenberg It is possible to have items swapped with a script. At least I think I can build one. I would emulate leftclickdrag with sixsense commands –  Wandang Aug 22 at 0:25
