Page 105 of the TOAW IV manual reveals that there is a method whereby passing the mouse over a friendly hex stacked with units will cause the Group Composition Panel to pop up.

Unfortunately, there is no explanation of the method used to make that happen.

So, if you please, explain this: How do I make Show Group Composition pop up by mousing over the stack of units? Thanks.

If I recall correct, "right click" on the unit inf0 panel box (the box where you see with the unit icon in it)

and that will make it that way....right click there again to change it back

sorry can't type good, do not have screen shpt for you

I found this. Is this what you mean? I got it by using the New Age Unit panel, and Right Clicking within that panel.

The Manual does say this:

Note that the Unit Panel can be placed in Group Composition mode – with the same display. Then mousing over the map can quickly reveal the contents of any observed hex.


Maybe it would be better to say this:

Note that the Unit Panel can be placed in Group Composition mode by Right Clicking within the Unit Panel [New Unit Panel only]. Then mousing over the map can quickly reveal the contents of any observed hex.

Yes, yes! That's it exactly ! That's exactly the method referred to at page 105 of the Manual.

Once the right-click on the panel is executed, mousing over a stack reveals its Group Composition!

Thanks very much. Very helpful.
