Is there a problem being able to set waypoints in the beta patch? I am new to the game but AFAIK to set a waypoint (say for a move) you select the unit, then the order type (e.g. move), and while holding down the shift key click where you want the first waypoint, then keep holding the shift key and click on the next location and so on up until the last one when you click without the shift key...Right??

But I cannot for the life of me get a waypoint to set since applying the beta patch!?!?! Am I missing something/being a TOTAL noob or is this a new problem? I am sure I was able to do this prior to the patch...

Ya-HELP!!!

Cheers,
Mark

Try holding the shift key down after selecting the unit or units but before selecting the order.

Just tested it, and it worked fine for me that way.

This problem happened to myself a few times but went away once I saved and reloaded.

Yep pressing and holding shift before clicking the order button works. Thanks!
