I have a dwarf in Dwarf Fortress 0.31.10 that will not take any job, and continually goes into Individual Combat Training. If removed from his squad, he will remain in No Job, and no other dwarf in his squad has this problem. Is there any way I can get this dwarf to work? Note that he does labors (including Hauling and Mining) enabled.

Seems like a known bug to me, according to the Dwarf Fortress Forums

Once dwarves start training in a barracks, they will never ever do any civilian work ever again. No matter what.

  • I know it was one, but my other military dwarves are fine. Why this one dwarf?

  • Military is just buggy. I rely on devious traps. Each more devious than the last.
