So I am playing a Kzinti yesterday, with a lot of drones on the board (of course!). Is there a way to take the stack of drones that are in the same hex going for the same target and make them act as one object for moving? I see a grouping option on the menu when I right click on a token, but it doesnt seem to do much.

Thanks.

IIRC, you can select all of the drones by highlighting them in the action panel, then use the arrows to move them in the direction you want.

I do that. However, I would rather not have to select them EVERY time. That's my point.

So, if groupings don't do that... what is the groupings option on the menu for?

Bane of a Seekers User. Smile I'm not sure if Paul has quite figured out that annoyance yet. I did hear a rumor the those seemingly useless F buttons would work for them. no idea how, though.

I need to work on the selection groups for Fed Com. For SFB it is done by the Game Control. But I removed the Game Control in an effort to simplify the Fed Com interface.

I think the solution is to:

1) Add the Group Selection functionality to the Movement tab
2) Figure out how to implement the Fx function key Group Selection functionality on the game board.[/list]
