Hi @Sleepy4201,
Did you by any chance alter the hotkey for this feature?
It can be found in: Find Unit Hotkeys → Find All Of Selected Type.

Never changed it. but I changed it from “Legacy” to “Default”, and reset to default. No dice. thanks for the suggestion.

In age of 2 De, double click only select idle villagers. I like it this feature.

I have this same problem. I described my ordeal with a few more words in this comment.

Also, I noticed the double-clicking happens even when clicking on other things on the screen while in a match. For example, trying to open deck or the menu.


My brother bought the game last week and had the same problem. I assumed it was a problem with his hotkeys but maybe not after reading that other people have the same issue.

I believe it started with the update in June. This wasn’t a problem prior to that update.

The problem is due to the update and it has not been fixed even though it has been more than 1 month. Lots of people are having the same problem. They should take care of Age 3 as well.

Hi guys, we’re now tracking the issue of some people having their double-click behavior being map wide.


The problem of selecting all units on double-clicking remains. It should choose what appears on the map. The problem still persists in beta.

Double click on villager should select only idle villager like Age of 2.

I have the same problem

Thank you. Weirdly it doesn’t affect all units / doesn’t do that all game long. But assigning a task to some villagers and seeing them all crossing the map to complete is heart breaking :baguette_bread:
