I often find the process of melting massive amounts ore or crafting multiple items tedious, as I can only craft one item at the time, and then pressing the confirmation button.

Is there an easier way to smelt/craft an item multiple times, instead of pressing the craft button, and then confirming it for each single item?

I usually just use the keyboard shortcut keys, it goes by pretty fast when I spam it –  z - Nov 16 '11 at 22:10
    
Similar to @yx, on the PC, I just position my mouse where the 'OK' button is, and then spam E->**Mouseclick**, repeat. –  LessPop_MoreFizz Nov 16 '11 at 22:12
    
@yx I do that too, but I still find the process tedious, and would much rather have an easier way of doing it. –  mordi2k Nov 16 '11 at 22:14

Or spam E and Y, for Yes. Does not require use of the mouse. –  Fredrik Nov 16 '11 at 22:53

@LessPop_MoreFizz you don't even need to alternate E's and mouseclicks. Clicking in the area where "yes" appears will attempt to smith the currently selected item, same as if you had pressed E. –  Raven Dreamer Nov 17 '11 at 2:16

Unfortunately there is not a way to craft multiple items as the comment have implied. Spamming E and Y seems to be the best solution for now.

It seems likely there will be a mod when the creation kit shows up that will improve this situation (for PC). I'll update this when it becomes available. (That is my primary reason for the answer, to make this easy to find and update later).
