Description

when adding a marker in the map during gameplay it would be great if in addition to up/down arrows to change icon, to be able to drop down box or some gui to select icons faster

in the editor however; it would be great to be able to select a group of units and change some attributes all at once for all selected units.. really if you can select a group of units and simply change them to playable, that would be great

Can agree with the editing groups of units

I like the marker idea. I didn't count them all, but I think there have to be over 100 markers available. At least sort into categories. Markers, flags, ranks, and symbos. Up/Down changes marker, Shift+ Up/Down changes color, why not have left/right change categories?

Absolutely agree with all of them. Arma 2 already had quite a few map markers, but this is INSANE! The new marker create menu is great but is begging for a drop down menu!

Mass group editing is another thing I've sorely wanted since ArmA, whether switching a group to playable or lowering a group's skill or even mass item giving, this is such a crucial element I can't believe isn't in!

Agreed, group editing would streamline ALOT of work in many situations.

Agreed, especially with the editing of group, but I think that they need their own tickets that are much more descriptive. This kind of ticket might be pretty useless, because the title doesn't tell anything.

I'll vote up if you make more specific tickets of both suggestions :)

I agree with the both ideas hope the devs see this.

Yep. Group Editing would be great.

This suggestion was processed by our team and will be looked into. We thank you for your feedback.

Group editing would be beyond fantastic. The ability to change elevation on a large quantity of objects would make base building much less time-consuming.
