Greetings all, Recently splashed out on CMBN with all the trimmings. I've worked through a few tutorials and the manual but I am wondering if I am missing how to do some things that seemed obvious in CM1.

Hello folks, I'm a lifelong strategy gamer who is new to the Combat Mission games, and am elated to finally be able to join you all now that I have a computer powerful enough to run it!

Any suggestions for UI, Functionality, or other improvements would be great.
