I'm quite busy with the crafting element of Fallout 4 and I want to pre-emptively start searching for components. When I'm in building mode and trying to place an item that I lack the required components for, I can press Q (PC) to tag these for search.

However (for example), I also want to tag Glue and Aluminium for search. I do not lack these components right now, but I might once I start using them.

Can I tag these for search (so they get highlighted in the world) without having run out of them?

  • However, @DangerZone, the two questions ask different things, and we dont accept answers as Adequate reason to close as dupe. – user106385 Dec 28 '15 at 20:52
  • Fair enough @Timelord64. – Broots Waymb Dec 28 '15 at 20:56

You should put all your junk in your inventory then enter the junk section in your pipboy. Your can press C (PC) to switch into component view. From there you can tag or un-tag any material you have for search.
This might also work without loading the junk in your inventory first, directly from the workbench inventory, but I am not sure right now.

  • Can't do it from the workbench. Tried. Wish you could. – DCShannon Jan 5 '16 at 0:02
