Noob Tip: How to Hotkey a Group of Regiments
Date: Thursday, July 30, 2009 @ 08:24:09 EDT

Commanding a dozen regiments during the heat of battle can be a daunting task. To make it easier, you can select and group up to six regiments at the same time and give them orders simultaneously. To select and group multiple regiments, click on an open area, hold down the left mouse button and drag a box around all of the regiments you wish to include. You can also manually add or remove regiments by holding down [Shift] or [Ctrl] and clicking on a regiment.

Once you have selected a group, you can save it by holding down [Ctrl] and pressing any of the keyboard number keys. This assigns all of the regiments in that group to that number key, allowing you to reselect that group by pressing that number key. When you assign a group to a number key in this way, that group appears in the unit bar at the top of the screen. Note: You can add groups to the unit bar directly by right-clicking in an empty square, and can select them by clicking on their portraits in the bar. If you like, you can also assign individual regiments and buildings to hotkeys and the unit bar in the same way. (Source: Axis and Allies RTS Official Manual)
