What is the default setting?

In other words to load troops and supply what should the screen say? Turn on load troops only or turn off load troops only?

Yup. Next to that button it's always going to be showing the opposite option of what it's currently set at.

If you make a mistake you can correct it with the Readjust Load option.

No, you have it backwards.

Turning on Load Troops Only will turn off the loading of supply.

Turn on Load Troops Only to load only troops.

Frankly, its difficult for me to see what is unclear about it.

Turn on Load Troops Only to load only troops.

He is asking about what the screen should say if he wants supply to be loaded. If it says "Turn on troops only", that is a switch to stop the loading of supply and that is what should show on the load screen. Because it is phrased as a command instead of information on the current status, it can be confusing if one is expecting a button type switch instead of a hypertext switch.

Exactly. So if the screen says Turn off load troops only and Turn off do not load oil nothing should be loaded but troops correct?

That depends. If it is an amphibious task force, it will load a nominal amount of supply for the troops if the supply is available.

Yes. That should be the unit's supply requirement X3. I think that is so for any kind of TF, not just Amphibs. At any rate, it is a minimal amount compared to the usual capacity of the ship.
