It would be nice if there was an inventory system that all of your Wanted Lists
could look at. I'm usually working on a few different wanted lists at the
same time. Currently, if I buy 20 of a piece, I have to assign a specific number
of those to specific wanted lists. It would be nice if all of my wanted lists
looked at it and I could see when particular wanted lists reached 100%. You could
then mark that list as "Complete", and it would take those items out of the inventory
pool. Deleting a wanted list would leave the pieces in the pool.

With the apply order function you can complete a specific Wantlist.

Indeed, but not multiple ones. So if you bought 20 of something, you can apply
5 to wanted list A, and it will still try to apply the full 20 from the same
order to wanted list B even if 5 were used completing wanted list A.

With the "apply order" button you see a table with proposed amounts to add

It's not easy to spot things that overflow. This is what the OP is finding
out I think.

I prefer to NOT HAVE an automatic overflow mechanism as the OP posted, I fear
I can't control it. I still prefer to see what happens and write down notes.

I dunno if they can highlight in yellow/red/orange when the amounts are inequal.
This could be informative and yet adaptable to user's habits.
