I recently bought a new Small Backpack, a Tool Belt and a Knife. After I bought them I equipped the backpack to my back (as you do.) But when I tried to fit the knife into my belt, I struggled, and ended up dropping both my knife and belt.
But when I scan the area I'm located in, I can't find these two items. They've totally disappeared!?!? How can I get them back?
Whilst still stood in the same square, I go to ITEMS and click on my backpack. Then I have the option to PUT ITEM, when I click it, I see a tool belt with the option to PUT ITEM INSIDE. But when I click on it, I don't seem to have it. I would like to pick it up and put it back on my belt, but I am unable.
Also, with ITEMS being disabled in the INVENTORY list, I can't tell exactly what I've got.

Whenever I've dropped something I went to position, items and it showed up in the right hand box. The left hand box showed me my character with items positioned in various places and the right hand box showed the items lying around or if I''d clicked on one of the items more info about it.
But now my item screen keeps on refreshing itself so I can't check again.
I kind of had a similair thing happening, i put my knife in (the pocket?) of my engineers vest, but now there's no way of retrieving it.
Unlike backpacks or the trunk you don't get a "view contents" option, so you can't retrieve it like you would from a backpack or trunk (view contents->pickup).
It should be, i can put the utility belt in the backpack and equip it again without problems (from the backpack) as a belt.
although i have no items in the belt it does show a "view contents"" button, unlike the vest (where i put my knife), so i guess that's why i can't get the knife back, so i guess the vest should either have a "view contents" button or you should not be able to put items there.
Also you should have enough "volume capacity" and, or weight capacity on your character to be able to equip it.
When i put on all items i was barely able to fit more on me, so could that be your problem ?.
