Is any unit selected when you press Alt+N? This command is applied to selected unit.

I would select the unit first, then apply Alt+N.

I went to the help desk on this and they referred me back here to you all. I even changed out my key board but no luck. There was one scenario that it did work but that vwas the only one. Should I keep uninstalling and reinstalling the disk until it does work?

Did you press the left Alt-N, the right Alt doesn't work.

Then I would suggest replacing your keyboard.. but you already tried that. You're sure that it ain't some keyboard software causing the problem? I mean could you check it if the "Alt" key works properly in some other program?

If you've selected the unit and then pressed ALT+N and still doesn't work, then it's something in your system that is preventing it or a bad keyboard.
You can install and uninstall many time has you want, but that won't change your issue. The problem is not with Panzer Corps, otherwise we all would have it.

Yes unfortunately there is not much we can do to help as nobody else sees this so it is some odd issue on your machine.

Thanks to all for trying to help. It's a real bummer because one of my main enjoyments is to rename the units based on historical order of battle. At least PC:AK starts with the correct OOB names already.

I still think it's odd the game is working properly *except* for that part... so the usual way of a workaround would be; check/ replace keyboard, if not then -> reinstall keyboard software, if not then -> reinstall game. There also the very small chance that the popup, where you enter the new units name, is in fact a popunder on your system. So the window would be "under" your gamescreen. To check that you would have to click on the Window start key so the lowerwindow bar appears, it should be visible there.

Thanks for everyone's attempt to help... finally got it to work by first pressing the left Alt, then pressing the right Alt+N.
