How do I convert this rifle brigade to an on-map unit? According to the manual, there is supposed to be a choice to "convert" in the space above "supply depots" but I'm not seeing it.

The unit you have the detail box open for can't convert as it is not in the same hex as it's HQ and also has no MPs remaining.

The unit you have highlighted in the side pane should be able to convert if you open it's detail box.

No, I'm asking about the unit that is already in support mode in the HQ.

For example, this guy. I want to take the 8th NKVD out of 58th Army HQ and make him a unit on the map. According to the manual, there should be a "convert" button somewhere but I'm not seeing it.

Some of them have "transfer unit" but that only sends them to Reserves. I guess I could do that and then bring them back in two turns, but the manual seems to suggest that you can get them put on the map with one movement point. That's what I want to do.

Oh right got you now. In that case I'm stumped :/ . Are they listed as MRUs in the Commanders Report?

This should work; I've done it many times. It looks like stacking in the hex is not the limitation.

Just to experiment, try moving the HQ away from the lines a bit and seeing what options are then available

I see a problem. It looks like units aren't being given the option to Convert back to on-map units. This bug probably came in around version 1.01.00 when the scaling changes were made. I'll get this on our bug list. Thanks for the report.

OK, cool, thanks Joel. Wasn't thinking of it as a bug but as my own stupidity, why I posted it here...

One thing I did notice was that if not locked, the HQs will shuffle the units to other HQs, and that may prevent them from being able to convert. Even if so, that didn't explain a situation that I saw myself when I locked the HQs. There's always the chance that there is an explanation and it's not a bug, but I think there is at least one bug in this area preventing a valid Convert from showing up on the unit detail screen in some cases.
