    Details: There is a kind of -crafter unfriendly- behavior of the Crafting stations.
    Steps to Reproduce:
    - Choosing "Repair" from combo box - for example: Tailoring station.
    - Put an armor part onto it.
    - Clicking "Minor Repair"
    --> my placed armor part is dropped into inventory, instead another item will be put on Tailoring station (if you have an item in inventory, of course)

    If I don't recognize, I repair a minor cloth boot, or whatever, which I wanted to salvage :(

    Crafter friendly (quality of live improved) behavior of a crafting station could be:
    1. A placed item on Crafting station shouldn't be removed automatically.
    2. If I click "repair" without any item on table, an EQUIPPED item should be placed on table,
    because it is usually the case, I need repair for my equipped items.
    3. If an item is locked to inventory (for not destroying it by accident!),
    Repair should also work for this item without unlocking it.
    4. Every Crafting station should work equal.

    Thank you for considering this :)

    I didn't even know that there was a recipe. I always just throw the item and a repair kit on the table and click Repair.

    Yes, it's the same with all recipes: Crafting searches your inventory for suitable ingredients first, and only after that does it consider what's on the crafting table. This obviously also affects masterworking, but can cause you to accidentally craft other items using the wrong components. For example, I was making a hard maple longbow, and had just crafted the hard maple bowstave. I also had some maple bowstaves in my inventory from salvaging I had done earlier. I then clicked the longbow recipe and crafted a maple bow with my enchanted elven bowstring.
