In this scenario, unlike others I've tried, when I select a unit, then right click
on an adjacent enemy, the combat occurs immediately. In other scenarios, the right
click brings up the menu allowing me to do a single unit limited attack, etc.
If the attacking unit isn't the only friendly unit in the hex then the computer
needs to disambiguate whether or not you want multiple units to attack.* If the
attacking unit is the only unit in the hex, then the pop-up menu isn't needed.
I haven't been able to determine if there is some game option that causes the immediate
attack, on right click. Is there one?
That kind of behavior is automatic and there's a workaround if you don't want that
behavior. Hover your mouse cursor over the target unit and press the letter 'P'
and the combat planner should open for you to tailor your attack like you wish,
sets up the attack for the immediate future and is a pretty handy tool.
