If I give a unit a direct order, it becomes detached, and I can reattach it to the main HQ by giving the HQ an order. How can I reattach it without doing this? If I click on the reattach button, the button disappears and nothing seems to happen. If I click on the unit, click reattach, and then click on its original HQ, again nothing. I don't get the dark blue line signifying that particular unit is now attached to that HQ.

When you hit the reattach button it shoulkd place the unit under command of its organic superForce. It may or may not force the superForce to replan. If it's doing an attack, and the unit does not represent a significant portion of its force then the superForce may continue with its order and place the unit on hold. When the superForce next repolans it will include the unit.

Now as to the command line, these may vary depending on the type of force structure you are viewing. There are three available and set from the display tool bar - ie organic, player plan, current. If the unit has been placed on hold, then you may not see a command line drawn between it and the superForce.

Another factor to consider is the orders delay. It may take some time for the orders to be processed and the command lines may not get updated till the orders are processed.

So just clicking on reattach by itself gets the job done? I don't have to click on the original HQ also?

No. Just select the unit and hit the reattach button.

BTW If you had selected the boss last before hitting the reattach button, then it will apply the command to the boss not the intended unit. In other words it applies to whatever is selected.
