How do I turn on the power point display for units when in NATO symbols mode? I have the 'I' information toggled 'ON'. Also, when I toggle the symbol to the icons I can see the power point value. I know it is possible because I was looking at the AAR that braveheart posted for Case Yellow and I can see they have it showing the way I would like. If there's a reference in the manual please post section.

Is this maybe a zoom level issue?

Thanks.

It'a a zoom issue. My screen shots are zoomed all the way in. At mid zoom you don't get the numbers on the nato symbols.

It would be really useful if this "power point" number was displayed as part of the Unit info (possibly in the space under Supl) as when playing on a laptop with limited resolution (I've got 1280x800) it is rather impractical to play fully zoomed in all the time as the vertical depth of the visible map is only 4-5 hexes and the power point number provides a very good at a glance indication of the overall combat strength of the unit.

PS I know I could just use the other icon display for the counters but I much much prefer the NATO symbology

yeah, I agree with Wolfe.  That 'power'# seems to important to not be visible based on a medium zoom. Maybe find someplace to put it? Also, it would be nice to have one more zoom level.  Since it goes from my medium 'playable' zoom to the high zoom which is not practical to really play on.  Although it's nicer to see with all the info.  I know we can't have it all.
