Moving ships between fleets
« on: May 08, 2024, 01:30:32 AM »
It's basic, but I admit I don't know if there is a solution. Is it possible to move several ships at once from one fleet to another? Ctrl-click does not work for multi-selection, but I can't imagine that after all these years Steve is still moving 36 fighters, one click at a time, from one fleet to another (fighters, FACs, or whatever; you get the idea!).

Multi-select works on the ship list for each fleet. Use shift-click or ctrl-click to select, then detach and drag to target.

Or set your fighters up in a strikegroup using squadrons and then detach that.

Oh I see, in the RIGHT hand list! It never occurred to me to test multi-detach from there, thanks!

Yes, the tree view is a Microsoft control and it doesn't allow multi-select.
