I'm trying to get a list going of what the special characters mean, please take a look at the following and let me know of ones I missed or have wrong.

Thanks, Daryl

Edit-
Wow those pages are hard to read, I'll try a different format.

Here it is as a text

LCUs

On LCU display: ** for weapon not allowing split units to combine.

On LCU display: ** in front and back of a device indicates it is a static devise

On LCU display: * in back of "This unit is composed of" indicates that the unit has an upgrade. (Select Show unit TOE and select the yellow hyperlink to see the upgrade)

On LCU display: + next to under-strength devices that are in pool,

On LCU display: = next to device if upgrade possible from pool.

On LCU display: "out of theater" means loses devices.

On LCU Withdraw List: * at end of name means withdrawn unit loses devices


Ships

On TF display: # behind ship to indicate command of TF

On TF display: * in ammo column if there are mine devices in the pool; acts as a quick check if mines could be loaded.

On TF display: ! next to mine ammo if can reload at base

Added column for fuel required to Auto Convoy screen; '+' next to value indicates ships in port
(Could not find an example)

Air

On air units screen: # indicates unit has a withdraw date (Squadron’s name may be clicked on to access its Air Unit Information Screen)

On air units screen: * after Search when patrol squadron has more than one patrol level set
On air units screen: * indicates the location of the parent of this group (applicable to fragments and sub-units).

On the Air destination screen: –r and -R identifies bases that the air unit can transfer to overland by rail = by road=
( do I have these backwards?)

On the Air destination screen: The –s designation identifies bases that the air unit can transfer by ship.

Bases

On base list, * (friendly) and ^ (enemy) to indicate mines are present or detected


On the convoy screen: * to base name if supplied from the western Allied supply base.
(I don't understand this one, auto convoy is off for Bataan)

On the Bases list screen: * indicates Airfield is overstacked.

On the Bases list screen: b indicates that port/af have building turned on



On Manage Ship Repair display: # to show cannot complete repairs


Miscellaneous

Added mouse-over on device pool upgrade date with * shows upgrade detail.

One small but interesting thing that I have noticed: if there are devices in the pool, but the device is set to "stockpile", then the "+" indicator does not show.

Very nice drw61, thank you.

Thats a part of the game where I often blankly stare at the symbol and click around until I can finally deduce what it means.

Will spare a lot of time!

I've a new ? on the * after in devices. What does the * mean after the date in the devices? Most of the time it's after the start date of the device but sometimes not & doesn't seem to correspond to whether the device is still active or not

IIRC you see that when you look at part of a unit that can recombine into a larger unit, and the * behind the device means that this device is a different version than in the same slot in the other sub-units of the larger unit, and therefore the sub-units can not recombine until the discrepancy is taken care of (by older devices upgrading to match the newer one).

Not talking about the * on the LCU screen but when looking at the industry/devices in the "I" screen where it shows the rates/pools of all the devices & their arrival/end dates

Look at the very last entry on the list.
That * is a mouse-over that shows the upgrade detail.

What does [S] mean in Air Units display after Unit Name?

For example:
1) Select "List All Land Based Air Units (A)"
2) Under Unit Name: "10th BS PAAC [S]"
