I've noticed only a few posts regarding how players are selected using keys so I hope this is not a double post.
First, clicking on a character portrait or a character on the screen should
select that character but it does not. I'm not sure how to describe it properly, but it should switch focus (select) to the character that was clicked, yet it does something else entirely. It seems like any time I want to select an individual character, I have to first click on the currently selected character in order to de-select him, then select on my new choice. I'm not sure if this is related to the double-click bug that I have seen posted.
Second, "select all" does nothing of the sort. What it should do, any time it is pressed
, is select the entire party. What happens instead is that any characters currently selected are de-selected, and vice versa - characters not previously selected are then selected. This behavior occurs identically when selecting by dragging a box around the party.
The combination of these two features make it very difficult to play this game, particularly when not using pause/play.
