Your gear in the forge should return to your inventory after closing it

I’m leveling a Primalist and I’m using a build where I’m always shapeshifting, so I can’t see the gear I’m wearing.
I thought that by upgrading my weapon in the forge and closing the window your gear would automatically return to the equipment slot but this is not the case.
Unaware of this I continued playing and didn’t notice this.
Finding another item to upgrade I discovered that my weapon was still there.

My suggestiong is that any gear in the forge should automatically returns to your equipment slot, whether you make changes or not.

Especially because the game doesn’t warn you that your weapon or equipment is still in the forge.
