The player may cycle through their units using the 8 (Previous) and 9 (Next) keybinds. Using the 0 (zero) keybind the player can exempt a unit from this cycle.

Units in Guard Mode are skipped and not selected when using the two cycle unit select keybinds.

Per the image, a white "G" character is noted on the unit's counter when in Guard Mode.

0 - Toggle selected unit Guard Mode
Q - Clear Guard Mode from all units

Related to keybinds:
8 - Select Previous Unit
9 - Select Next Unit

See Anatomy of a Unit Counter for further details about unit counters.

Guard Mode is only mentioned in Manual section 3.3.1, Hotkeys and without a description.

I noticed if you toggle guard mode on an OHQ it will tag or untag all of the subordinate units as well.

Handy tips. I really haven't found it necessary to look through the manual section on the interface, but that means I've missed a few actually useful tidbits like this one.

Thanks for the help! That manual is a beast; I've only read sections, so I've missed that information. I've wanted each of those functions you mention.
