I am working on a scenario and I take a tank platoon, put it in free formation, place the tanks where I want them, reattach them to the HQ and then lock the HQ. I save the scenario. When I come back later to edit more of the scenario, open the editor and file and the platoon is not where I put it and is in line formation and unlocked. I've tried this many times and cannot get it to work. What is going on?

Only the platoon position is saved, not the individual unit positions.

in company level formation , they remain in vicinity of location you set for them , but not exactly location you placed such as infantry in building , so don't waste to micro management!

Yeah, after playing around with it a bit, I finally figured out that is how it is working. So then I kept playing with the defend mission and different formations until I got the sub-units emplaced somewhat how I wanted them to be.

Thanks to both of you for your answers.

In my scenarios, I rarely give human player company formations unless they are small (for example Soviet tank company). Since rotation, formation type and width are memorised, they can be placed fairly accurately.
