Giving occupations to villagers

On the browser version I'm unable to give occupations to my villagers, I'm assuming I just press the buttons to the right of the occupation, but when I do, nothing happens.

The buttons render poorly in some browsers. Perhaps earlier versions of A Dark Room also presented them badly; when I check again today, the buttons are more easily distinguished.

There should be four buttons to the right of each occupation (in the village) and supply item (in the trail). The buttons are arranged as “up/down” buttons; chevrons up and down, like on a number spinner in some applications. The nearer buttons alter the amount by 1; the further buttons alter the amount by 5.

If the buttons render poorly you might see a jumbled shape of angles. You will need to precisely click on the up or down part to increase or decrease by the right amount.

Experiment with different browsers; if you can find one which consistently gets the buttons wrong, report a bug for A Dark Room so that it can be corrected.
