Ever since my game updated with the new update (the really cool one that added stained glass, fireworks, and such) I haven't been able to craft anything. I've tried crafting from my inventory with wood to make planks, and nothing would show up in the other slot. Even when trying to make sticks, or chests, or anything else, I can't craft anything at all. I put all of the items in the correct slots, but it won't show up. Even with the crafting book on the next screen, nothing will show up for me to make, no matter what items I have in my inventory. I don't know what to do. I've tried in survival mode and creative mode, and with a bunch of different recipes, but nothing will work. I have a world in which I'm trying to completely complete the game, but, since the new update, I can't craft anything at all. I haven't seen anyone else with this problem so far. Does anyone on here know what I'm talking about? Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix it? Thank you!
I just now had this happen to me as well. Recipe book showed nothing craftable, and manually crafting wouldn't work either. I rebooted my whole PC, and I'm able to craft again, so you might give that a try.
Bump. I'm trying to play on my PC and have my girlfriend play on my Xbox One. We are using different accounts (for Xbox Live & MC) and no matter what I do (Singleplayer, Servers, Realms) it won't let me craft ANYTHING. I've been playing since Alpha and have played on all platforms as well. We're both on the Better Together versions of the game and can join a game together.. But that's about it. When you put the logs or anything to craft it, nothing comes out-- even trying to use a recipe it says I don't have what's required. Really disappointing from Mojang-- I've been waiting for this update to come out so I could show her the game.. If anyone figures out a solution please let me know.
NOTE: Export world(s) before uninstall/reinstalling!!!
Uninstall/reinstall deletes all worlds. reverts the game back to the default settings, and you'll have to re-download any packs, skins, etc. you had before. Luckily, you can do all that for free.
As a side note, I'm thinking the "no craft" thing only happens under certain circumstances. I've never had a problem crafting.... but I never go on servers, never use a custom world (like CraftBukkit). Only vanilla stuff.... well, except for the Natural Pack.
