Currently you can set a batch size of x1, x2... x5, x10, x20... x50, x99 (total 11 options).
I very often need (want) to produce 7, 9, 13... units of something (usually troop droops) that I want to finish on the same turn. Since I can't set a batch size of 7, I need to order two batches of 5 and 2 (or 4 and 3) and micromanage them to get both produced at the same turn.
Could we have a more versatile way to set the batch size instead of a drop-down menu with fixed sizes?

You can certainly add an Issue requesting an additional ProductionQueue context menu option for adjusting batch size (which would open up an edit window kind of like for renaming things). I agree it's a minor hassle to deal with at times, but there is no telling when any of us might decide this makes the cut on our personal priority lists for implementing things.

Agree, it is less than a minor issue. I wouldn't mind seeing it at the end of list for years. So I'll open it (eventually, not now, feeling lazy).
