Research and build unit/building cheats require you to do something in game to effect it. Clicking the research item or going into the city. Leave the cheat ON until the player selects another cheat or turns it off. Of course there will be a few who don't turn it off and complain that it keeps doing the effect but it will be fewer key presses to turn the cheat on over and over for long builds/research.
Trainer works fine, execpt it uses the Num keys Only, i cant get the CH Costomizer to unlock the Num1 to Num9 key's..
So if i put the keys on the 1-8 on the Alpha number keys, the trainer still register on the numpad keys..
Don't normally do this, but I posted this right when they did the update last night and I think it got buried.
It is very helpful way to avoid entering/leaving city excessively.
WORK AROUND TRICK FOR UPDATE: The new update removed this manual assignment of worker buttons (and city center auto assign button).
So the new trick I found is you have to click the "Manual Specialist Control" buttons on the right side of the screen inside the city management window (Located in the "Specialist Buildings" drop down box)
If you spam these little buttons after doing building research trainer hotkey, it has the same effect.
With 1 trainer hotkey click and some quick specialist button mashing you can reduce like 20+ turns per trainer hotkey.

Actually in the case of this game you must also uncheck Steam Cloud to keep it from auto updating - with Steam Cloud checked the game is forced auto update regardless of if you select Do Not Auto Update (it will always restore it to Auto Update) - Simply Select Do Not Auto Update and uncheck use Steam Cloud on the same screen, then it will always stay "Do Not Update" even after you quit and restart Steam.
This is how every Steam Cloud enabled game works.
