Maj+Middle Button and Ctrl+Maj+Middle Button hotkeys are not working properly since new patch. I have “Select All Market” on Maj+Middle Button, but I have to do Ctrl+Middle Button instead now. Also, I have Ctrl+Maj+Middle Button for “Go to Market” but it doesn’t work anymore and now does “Select All Market” (Ctrl+Middle Button) instead.

i already reported this here. have the same.

Somehow when you have select all iddle villager set as “Shift+ Middle button” and not having “CTRL + Middle button” set somewhere else, By pressing “CTRL + Middle button” you could select all Iddle villagers. :crazy_face:
The opposite doesn’t work

Hi everyone!

Thanks, we are already tracking this issue!


Similar here, I have my middle mouse button assigned to military unit production. It works solo, but when i use shift + middle mouse button i can’t produce multiple units.
And my extra mouse button also doesn’t work. It’s a logitech mouse with G Hub so the extra mouse button is assigned to produce an “Y” letter when pressed. When I press the Y on keyboard the military units are produced, no problem. When I press the extra mouse button on chat, the letter Y gets typed. But when I used it to military production nothing happens.
Both bugs started with this latest update from 27 Apr.

I have the same configuration and also have the issue with my hotkeys. Its a very annoying bug :face_with_symbols_over_mouth:

Here is what worked as a temporary workaround for me: I used my mouse software to map the middle mouse button into a keyboard key. Then I changed all my hotkeys to use this key instead of the mouse. At least now I can play using hotkeys again.
