I have installed the game again and updated to 3.0.2. I'm using Win10.
I have noticed that most of the times I try to use 2 units from the flyout for land combat it doesn't work. I can select both of them (they are marked with blue background) but when I move the mouse cursor out of the flyout either nothing happens (I can't use them to attack) or the units get deselected and the flyout closes.
If I try many times, eventually I can do it (maybe it works 1 out of 6 times). If I select only 1 unit from the flyout, it's still problematic but it seems to me that there are better chances of it working properly.
It's not a blocking bug, as I can drag the units directly from the map, or try repeatedly from the flyout, but it's pretty annoying as I use the flyout a lot.
I am not sure what is happening here. Since it works for you some of the time, let me take a guess, ...
Many Windows applications (and war games) use "drag and drop" to move objects (e.g., files). That system requires the player to select an object and then continue holding the mouse button down while he moves to a new destination (drag) and then release the mouse button to 'drop' the object in the new location.
MWIF does not use drag and drop to move units. Instead, the player selects a unit (left mouse click) and releases the mouse button. Then he moves the mouse cursor to a destination and uses left click a second time to 'drop' the unit in the new location.
Perhaps you are using your previous 'training' of drag and drop for other applications and trying to apply it for MWIF. That can cause problems.
Perfection is an elusive goal.
