    Every time I want to repair a tool with my kit I have to click on the kit then scroll down to my tool (which is at the bottom of my inventory) and drag the kit on it. But scrolling down sometime don't work at all and it's pretty anoying.

    Could you consider adding an inventory tab for tool and the possibility of switching tabs while clicking on a repair kit?
    Or just maybe an option like this : 1) right click on your tool 2) repair tool

    Thanks!

    I tend to keep my repair kits in a separate container that way you can have them easily draggable on to a tool that's already scrolled into position.

    Even better would be to get rid of drag/drop for repair kits. It's super annoying when dropping them into a chest or into inventory to have to make sure you're not dropping it onto something else that can be repaired. I think it would be better to right click the thing you want to repair, and if you have an appropriate repair kit in your inventory, the context menu gives you a "Repair" option.

    There is an easier way

    Open your skill window, and go in the crafting tree where your broken down tool is (so mining for a pickaxe), then drag your tool repair kit from your inventory onto the tool in the skill window (bottom left corner)!

    For sickle or pickaxe you can also keep your repair kits in your main inventory and put "k" in the search field. That will filter out most of your inventory and put your repair kits pretty close to your tools.

    (would still be nice to be able to just right click > repair anything that's repairable if you have a kit though)

    I use Tools of Prosperity and am glad every day I use them that they never need repair. They are available in the COTO store and worth every penny.
