Just started at RimWorld and I see an objective asking me to unforbid my resources. I have a ton of forbidden steel lying around and I was wondering if there is anyway to simply unforbid all steel? Or do I have to manually unforbid each one?


You can select an area with your mouse, and if you get no colonists in that area, it will select all items. Then unforbid them all.

You can also doubleclick an item to have it select all on-screen items of the same type (so, doubleclick steel to select all steel) and mass unforbid that way.
