This is probably a dumb question with an obvious answer, but is there a button to set a city to idle? One of my cities has exhausted all of its build options and I don't want to train anything there. However, I can't move my units when "Zzz" is displayed next to a city.

Wait what?

but is there a button to set a city to idle?

I do not believe there is...
I think there should be, but have no knowledge of one.

Do you normally use auto end turn? If so, have you tried pressing 'Enter' to end the turn?

Thanks guys. I was playing on auto turn and pressing the end turn button solves the problem. However, I'd still like there to be a way that I can continue playing on auto turn with some cities idle (like in Civ 5, when you can set them to research etc.).

 

Having said that, I actually really like the fact that you can't move units on auto turn when you haven't assigned a task to a city. For me, this small change makes the difference between the game being playable and unplayable. Before this, I was always leaving cities to idle by mistake.
