KP#7: The text box for entering troops responds instantly in unintuitive ways to single key strokes.

The text box for entering troops responds instantly in unintuitive ways to single key strokes. It’s effectively impossible to enter a troops composition as the interface keep adjusting what is in the box while I am trying to type, and also moving the cursor back to the start of the box.

Example: Toggle all buttons by pressing the R-K button. “*R;*M;*S;*E;*C;*B;*LB;*AB;*K” appears in the text box, which is fine. Then start typing 10M and see how it disappears when done.

  1. The intended way is to use the controls from top to bottom. So I toggle the troops buttons first and then I go into the text box and adjust the mounts of the troops. In that case it works well. I see that when you work the other way round, i.e. not use the buttons but type straight ahead, weird things will happen. I gave an example how to reproduce in the description above. Can you check whether this is what you are referring to and if now let me know by appending anothe rmessage here with a detailed example of what you type, what your expectation is and what actually happens? Thanks!

  2. Example. Entering an optimization job

    Select “UA” (Surprise attack)
    Select camp “22”, (final camp)
    Start typing in the troop box “0-64R;1E;*AB”

    After typing “0-64R”
    the text box suddenly changes to “*R” and the cursor moves to the start of the box, rather than the end.

    Generally speaking, text boxes should not suddenly change their contents to something I didn’t type as I am entering text.
