Stop extraction from a specific input inventory slot

Issue description

Hey,

So i'm probably missing something fairly obvious, but I've been trying for a couple of days to create a block that simply converts one item into another. This bit I've achieved, but while trying to automate it with hoppers I keep having the items in the input slot being extracted by the hopper before the block can convert them. Is there a way that i can simply lock the extraction of the input slot, allowing for input only into slot 0 and extraction only from slot 1? I'd ideally like it to be compatible with other mods too, not just hoppers. 

I've tried a number of solutions, but I'm a bit confused why it should be happening and why no one else seems to have a similar problem upon doing a google search? 

Any help would be appreciated :) 

Thanks

In the block editor in the Block's tile entity and inventory section, enter the IDs of your output slots in the field Comma separated list of IDs of output slots and these slots won't be used with hopper.

That isn't what I'm trying to do. I don't want the slots to not be used with the hoppers, I want to limit extraction to one slot and input to the other slot, not remove the functionality altogether.

I will check how this functionality can be implemented and possibly add this feature in the future updates.

Yea we need to be able to limit extraction and insertion of items separately.
