Changing an escort ship's formation station point - 12/2/2017 3:36:47 AM

Hi all,

I'm having a bit of trouble with ship formations. I'm playing Midway vs Cuba scenario and would like to detach one of my ASW FFG to run out ahead and maintain station about 12nm ahead of the rest of the leading escorts of the main CVBG, and then Sprint and drift from that station.

So I detached the FFG, moved it ahead of the group and then reattached the FFG to the group. Unfortunately as soon as I reattached it to the group it started moving back to it's original station point relative to the carrier. And I can't seem to move the station point.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks Flitch, that did the trick. The click and drag didn't work. Appreciate it!
