The following quote is from the Help for the Unit Review Form (cntl U):

quote:

There isn't a lot that can be done with this form, other than examining the units in the game. Using the
filter however, makes it a powerful tool. For example, you could check out all your armor units: where they
are, their current status, which ones are coming in as reinforcements, and which ones you'll be able to build in
the next production phase. Double clicking on a unit closes this form and repositions the current detailed map
so it is centered on the selected unit (assuming it is on the map).


Double clicking on a unit does close the form, but does not change the position of the detailed map. Is this an unimplemented feature, or am I somehow fouling up my double clicking? It would be nice if this feature worked.

Looks like this post should be move to the tech forum - either a bug or a piece of missing code. Result is the same.

No, this post should be moved to the "Posts posted by an idiot" forum (namely, me). To get the behavior I want requires checking the little box marked "Center linked map on selected unit" at the bottom of the display, which I had not noticed before. Unfortunately, checking the box is not sticky; it must be rechecked each time.

The functionality is there; it is just the explanation of how to use it was not clear enough for me to understand how to use it.

You have one of the best signature sentences I have seen!
