:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED


When Alt + number (for example Alt + 1) hotkey is used for Select Group command,
it not only selects the group, but centers it also at the same time.
It behaves as if it was Select & Center which it is not.
(same with Alt + some other key (not only numbers)).
In default Hotkey Settings it is for groups from #11 to #20

Hi @ithinka
I can’t reproduce this issue, when I press Alt+1 to select Control Group 11, it just selects it but doesn’t center the camera.
What input are you using on your keyboard? English?

Thanks for your report :slight_smile:

I have slightly different but maybe similar issue.

I use ALT + cedilla(, key above TAB) for the "select all military units’ command and since one or two patches ago the hotkey stops working on land units if i have at least 1 warship, and only selects warships no matter if single tap or double tap. The issue only happens with ALT modifier.

thank you for your reply, maybe it was something with my computer then,

but now that I tried it again the issue does not occur anymore, so I am happy in any case :slight_smile:

thank you again, have a nice day :slight_smile:
