Ran into this issue yesterday. I was doing some research yesterday and realized I was accidentally researching some cloth gear instead of leather. My mistake, surely, but looking at the research tab, some of it you can't fully tell if it's leather or cloth. Could we see if we can have some better way of identifying it? Sure they do have names on them, but I've also noticed that since launch, cloth armor has names you'd expect for leather and vice versa (ex, cloth chest armor called a jerkin, and leather arm bands had a woven in front of it.)
Also, if we had a way to pause or cancel research, that would be helpful as well.
