Is there a way to cycle through units with a (n)ext key or (p)revious key? I keep missing units that have action points left.

I may be wrong, but I don't think there's any hot keys to select the "next" or "previous" unit. I found the best way to insure that no units are missed during your turn is to move them a Division at a time. You'll typically want to keep them close together anyhow in order to receive the Divisional combat bonus. It's also somewhat helpful to use the OOB tab to locate units.

Also, I think the unit icon changes color after they're moved. "Bright" icons haven't moved.

Hot keys would have been nice.

Ok, first I admit that I'm old and easily confused. But after trying the < and > keys to cycle through units, I couldn't make sense of the cycling process.

For example:

Case Yellow / Army Grp B / 18th Army / X Corp / 227 Div, Ist reg - "<" key cycles to Eng, X Corp, Pressing "< " again cycles to Fliegerkorps V, Army Grp A???

Pressing ">" key with 227, Ist regiment selected cycles to OKH???

I couldn't figure out how to cycle through each regiment within a Division. I know I'm probably doing something wrong, but I don't know what.

The good thing is I'm really enjoying the game without using "next", "Previous" unit keys.
