All units which end their orders (other than Engage) will revert to Defend> Hold separate of the other units in a platoon. Engage orders will revert to Engage> Stay. If a platoon continues the same order (such as Engage> Move) only the Commander will receive the new order. Each subunit can be ordered after the Commander as desired. To force the whole platoon to follow that order, select the order, press and hold the shift key and click the destination. For orders without destinations, press and hold shift and then give the order.
This also works for Gold Orders such as Pathing and SOP. Gold orders are not global. Press and hold the shift key then click the button
Two new features are waypoints and automounting.
Automounting means you no longer have to wait for the next phase to mount. See 5.4
Waypoints are possible for Rush, Advance, Engage>Move, and Defend>Move, and Bound. (Not available for Withdraw). To place a waypoint, select an order, hold the crtl key and click the map. For more than one waypoint continue to hold the crtl key and click again. The maximum allowed waypoints is three. Automount is allowed for the last line of movement.
