The latest Beta patch (http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=2523358 ) introduced an option to show patrol zones for multiple TFs at the same time (item 75). The documentation for this enhancement did not get into the release. Also note that this feature, like the Next/Previous TF feature, interacts with the display settings on the TF list screen (Hot Key ‘t’).
I believe this is a full description of the features and their interactions.
TF List (Hot Key ‘t’) will show active TFs, with an ability to narrow the list. Players can order display of all TFs or narrow the display to show one/some of Air Combat, Surface, Sub Ops, Transport, etc. TFs. Whatever selection is made on this screen is remembered and used as a filter for two other functions (below).
The existing Next/Previous TF functions will step through on-map TFs, displaying them in sequence. Only those TFs that match the selection criteria selected (above) will be displayed. For example, if the player has selected to display only Sub Ops TFs on the TF list screen, the Next/Previous TF keys will step through the Sub Ops TFs on the board. Also note that there are two variations of Next/Previous. Use of shifted ‘<’ and ‘>’ will move to the next/previous TF and display the TF screen for that TF. Use of the same keys un-shifted (actually ‘,’ and ‘.’) will move to the TF but not display the TF screen.
The new Show All Patrol Zones function (Hot Key ‘6’) will show all patrol zones for TFs that match the previously specified selection criteria. In the Sub Ops TF example, only patrol zones for sub TFs will be displayed. Note that patrol zones for all selected TFs will be displayed and the display only shows that actual patrol zone (not the approach path from the TF’s currently location to the patrol zone). If the patrol zones overlap the display can become confusing.
Neither Next/Previous nor Show All Patrol Zones will display off-map or delayed arrival TFs.
