|Summary||0021906: Shift to deselect fleets|
|Description||Holding shift can be used to add fleets to a selection on the galaxy map, but clicking again on a fleet doesn't de-select it. Seems like it should.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
I might be mistaken, but I think alt + click performs this function on the galaxy map.
It works for sure in planet view.
If there's not already a gameplay tip on command modifiers...
(shift to queue movement and attacks, shift and alt to modify selections, ctrl and alt to modify placements)
... then this is a good candidate for it. Maybe even a short tutorial is needed.
For me at least shift currently works for adding ships to a fleet. If you follow the general computing paradigm it makes sense to use the same button for deselecting.
To describe the current selection methods:
Click / Box (no modifier) = New selection, will replace any current selection
Click / Box + Shift = Add to selection, will add ships or fleets to your current selection
Click / Box + Alt = Remove from selection, will remove ships or fleets from your current selection
There is no "toggle" modifier, where clicking ships already selected will deselect and vice-versa.
And a note: all of these modifiers work with control groups as well: Hold shift and press 1, 2, 3 to select all 3 fleets, hold alt and press 2 to remove fleet 2 from the selection (leaving you with just 1 and 3 selected).
> Click / Box + Alt = Remove from selection, will remove ships or fleets from your current selection
This runs counter to how shift usually works. Players will be used to using shift for select/deselect because that's how it works in most operating systems.
