    Issues of loading-unloading cargo wagons.

    - when in city window appears many Cargo wagons, list of all wagons becomes scrollable. After loading or unloading one good, the scroll jumps to the beginning and I have to search for the same wagon/ship again.

    -there must be "unload all" button. Unloading each good by dragging is quite time consuming.

    -if there is a wagon with partly used space (for example 53 ore), and I want to make this space full, I drag ore over this cargo space, but it adds one full load to another empty cargo space, if there are no free space, then it works correctly. The ways to load should be distinguished. You drag over empty space - it fills with 100. You drag over partly used - it fills until full.

    -its impossible to exchange goods between two full wagons or cargo ships in city. If I take good from full cargo wagon and try to put in to full ship, I expect these goods to load on ship and exchange places with loaded one. Now there is only one possibility-unload to warehouse and the load again wagons or ships.

    -if there are several wagons in city screen and list became scrollable and if I want to load from bottom wagon to the ship which is first on list - I have to put goods in to warehouse. The list doesn't scroll when I drag goods in it.

    -its impossible to distinguish several cargo wagons in city window. If I load one of them, I don't know if it has moved already or still has movement left.

    This is a "by design" behavior, I think. If my memory isn't playing tricks on me, it worked the same way in the original game. When you want to move a partial load, hold down the <shift> key and drag the cargo. When you release the mouse button, the game will ask you how many units you want to move.

    And here comes another minor problem: The amount field isn't marked by default, so you have to manually mark it in order to change the amount of goods. Again, very annoying, especially since this worked properly in the original Col.

    Of course, it's by design and it's not a bug. But that means, that when I want one cargo space simply to fill, I have to check, what is in there, subtract it from 100 and then write the result number with <Shift>.
    -And you just reminded me another bug. When I press <Shift>, and the amount field appears, I select the cursor in the field, but if the mouse moves away on OK button , cursor disappears and I have to select the field again.
    -Also <Shift> for splitting the cargo doesn't work when you move goods between two wagons or ships.
