Thanks for the response and awesome support michaelm.
The behavior I described in my previous post was a clear change from previous and I don't consider it a real problem. The reason I posted it was to ensure the behavior was not tied to something else that 'broke loose' in the coding for the betas. I will explain in further detail what I used to do and what now happens. You can decide if this behavior requires attention or not. Also, new behavior is occurring which I will comment on below.
What I do in my games is keep pretty tight controls of the TF # assigned to certain fleets. This makes for a large stack of single ship fleets in a certain port. Previously I would click on the ships (main map screen) to go directly to the fleets, bypassing form fleet on the base screen. From the list of fleets there, select one, choose form new fleet, sort the ships, scroll down, and choose a ship to transfer to this 'saved number' fleet. By doing it this way, the new fleet formed emulates the destination and home ports, but nothing else is copied. Because of the large number of ships ported here, I have to scroll down my list when I am choosing my ship for the fleet. Due to the amount of 'saved TF numbers', I am then making more fleets until I go above the range of numbers I am saving. Things are a little different now:
Previous behavior: Position in the scrolled down list of ships was saved as long as I close no windows and do nothing more than modify a few minor things on the newly formed fleet (reaction and retirement for example... simple click changes). Click form new fleet and no need to scroll down the ship list. Just click the ship on list already sorted and in the scrolled position I need.
Recent behavior: I have to scroll down the ship list each time I form a fleet, even though I am forming fleets the exact same way I used to previously. Again, this is no game breaker, I just want you aware of it in case it causes other problems with other coding.
NEW behavior: With the change to 118d, not only do I have to scroll down the list of ships, but the ship sorting does not save either. This means I must click the sort by column(troop, cargo, etc) and scroll down as well. I am pretty sure you didn't intend to add more clicks for us to do, did you? :)
Michaelm, again, do with this as you wish. This behavior is an obvious change in the way I was playing/organizing things. I just want to be sure you did not unintentionally break something else by giving us these changes. Banzai!
Edited to add this one detail: I am making the same type of fleet, transport, when I am 'spam' creating these new fleets.
