When looking at changes to the Organisation Dialogue can you maybe get the Panzer Campaign dialogue to behave like the Panzer Battle dialogue?

In PB if you select a unit, hit Q to get the organisation, then hit ALT Q to bring up the dialogue the original organisation stays highlighted AND THE ORGANISATION DIALOGUE OPENS WITH THE UNIT/ORGANISATION SHOWING.

The fact that the Dialogue opens automatically 'bookmarked' at the unit/organisation initially highlighted makes it incredibly easy to navigate through the OOB and find other units.

So for example I can select 231st Bde HQ and then quickly check each Battalion in the Bde or even jump quickly to another Bde.

By contrast in PzC if you select a sub unit and Q when you the hit ALT Q to bring up the organisation dialogue you are faced with...

...the highlighted organisation is deselected and you then have to spend a bit of time navigating through the Organisation Dialogue to find the unit organisation you want?

Admittedly most players probably start off with the Dialogue to find the organisation but I find the Panzer Battle implementation incredibly easy and useful for navigating the battlefield and finding out where everything is?

Edit: actually when I think about it making the Panzer Campaign dialogue behave like the Panzer Battle dialogue might be difficult as they are two very different engines. Panzer Battles might look similar but I believe it was designed and built new from the ground up?

They are the same engine….

No promises, but we will see what makes sense.

I have to confess that I had no idea that Panzer Battles worked differently in this regard to Panzer Campaigns.

Some major changes were highlighted for Panzer Campaigns 4.05 including updates to the Org Dialog.

This is one of them.
