Disband fleet: Ship list. Sort on fleet. Not perfect, but nothing that bother me much.
Send a few ships to invade. Organize them in a fleet. Or multiselect from nearby ships with dragging a box shift/control clicking. I think I miss an option to multiselect ships this way and have fleet options (join) on right click.
Are you sure giving the "stop" order to a construction ship won't stop the current mission, but keep the rest of the queue? I don't have the game up, and I am not sure myself.
Thanks Bing, that will help, but it would be much more intuitive if a few small options were added such as:
1) Option to disband fleet through the right click menu when the fleet is selected, or in the menu below the selection panel or simply via a button in the fleet screen.
2) Option to order multiple ships to invade/blockade a planet through the right click menu.
3) Option to select one class of ships around a crowded planet either by a new shortcut key that selects all ships of the same type or, to allow even more control, by drag-selecting every ship and then being able to sort which ones you want to keep selected by shift-clicking on them in the selection panel.
The construction ship does stop it's current order with the 'stop' button, but sometimes instantly resumes it if you put it back on 'auto'. You then have to manually order it what to do.
It would be nice to have an option in the menu below the selection panel to make the construction ship skip to the next build oder in the building queue.
I really hope these minor adjustements are added as it would make overall ship control a LOT easier.
