Jifodus, are there any plans to update this?
I saw a recent post in the Nano Fortress thread that you were looking into fixing that...

1.Go to the 'Data' folder
2.Go to the 'Init' folder
3.Open the 'Announcements' file
4.Look for these:
[DIG_CANCEL_WARM:A_D:D_D:P:R]
[DIG_CANCEL_DAMP:A_D:D_D:P:R]
5.Remove 'P:R' like so:
[DIG_CANCEL_WARM:A_D:D_D]
[DIG_CANCEL_DAMP:A_D:D_D]

Or just remove the lines all together, either or works. It still undesignates though.

But, the undesignate is my biggest issue.  Is there any thought on updating this?

Yes, it now works with 0.31.18, but it doesn't support independently disabling water and magma warnings.  Enjoy with caution.

Just noticed that the link is down.  I grabbed it while it was still available, so you can grab it http://dl.dropbox.com/u/8001374/justdigitout.zip.

Okay, how does it work exactly? Anyone up to give a brief explanation how to use it?

If it really works on .18, then Jifodus has just made one happy player.

You run the exe and it will disable the warm / wet stone messages and just have your dwarf keep digging.  Run it again to re-enable the messages.

Yes, the utility downloaded from the Arphahat's dropbox (few posts up in the thread) works in last version (0.34.07), i used it yesterday to dig layer directly under plenty of lakes and job cancelations were driving me mad until i found this gem on forum :)

Would it be possible for someone to turn this into a DFhack plugin? It would be much more convenient than a seperate executable.

You can customize your announcements settings without third-party utilities:
Quote from: The wiki
Controlling which announcements pause and recenter

You can control which types of announcements do and don't pause and/or recenter the game by editing the announcements.txt file, found at Dwarf Fortress/data/init/announcements.txt. An announcement type containing P will pause when that announcement type is made, and one containing R will re-center when that announcement type is made. For example,
[MIGRANT_ARRIVAL:A_D:D_D:P:R]

means that the game will pause and recenter upon the announcement of migrants arriving. You could change it to
[MIGRANT_ARRIVAL:A_D:D_D:R]

to cause the game to recenter on the arriving migrants, but to not pause the game.
The game will still cancel the designations though.

Edit: Also, reposting something that has been said at least twice in this thread...

Since I spent over 30 minutes trying to find a way to stop the cancellations, and this is STILL the most relevant solution, all these years later, and since it hasn't been asked or answered yet, and there are others who may be wondering, like I was....

This STILL works for DF2014.  (0.40.24) 

... Thank the gods.

I suggest using kilokittens. As cats are 10X the volume of kittens. That way, 50 cats would be .5 kilokittens.

100 cats would be 1 kilokitten.

This worked for me today on 42_06 with warm stone.  I did not try damp stone.  I also had already manually remove prompt/recenter from announcements.txt.  It also reversed itself with no problem.
