Let them whine, Don't listen to the crying babies. You are doing a great job
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.
