Alt-number to select and scroll no longer works?

I set a control group using selected items, then control + #. In HD, I would then use alt+# to go that group (both select and scroll to it). This doesn’t seem to work in AOE 2 DE. I have to hit the # and then space to go to it.

Is there some other way to do this in one step using hotkeys? I can click on the control group icon in the bottom middle, but I can’t figure out how to do it using keys without hitting # then space.
