Interesting, I haven't checked the manual but the dot key (.) does that for me with the default configuration.

Pro tip: Also try the Alt + . shortcut to select all idle units on the map.

Edit: I've done some more testing and I realized what the problem could be. So first of all, the manual says that the forward slash key (/) selects idle fighters. There is a difference between those two hotkeys when both of them select idle citizen soldiers, but the dot also selects idle women, and the slash selects idle champion units too.

I've noticed that the slash hotkey doesn't work when I press the slash on the numerical keyboard. Does your keyboard have a different key for the slash? When I use the English keyboard, the key that works is to the left of my right Shift.

From binaries/data/config/default.cfg:

[hotkey.selection]
add = Shift                  ; Add units to selection
militaryonly = Alt           ; Add only military units to the selection
nonmilitaryonly = "Alt+Y"    ; Add only non-military units to the selection
idleonly = "I"               ; Select only idle units
woundedonly = "O"            ; Select only wounded units
remove = Ctrl                ; Remove units from selection
cancel = Esc                 ; Un-select all units and cancel building placement
idleworker = Period          ; Select next idle worker
idlewarrior = ForwardSlash   ; Select next idle warrior
idleunit = BackSlash         ; Select next idle unit
offscreen = Alt              ; Include offscreen units in selection

The names are slightly misleading (see session.js); what is actually checked are these entity classes:

  • idleworker: "FemaleCitizen", "Trader", "FishingBoat", "Citizen"
  • idlewarrior: "Unit+Melee", "Unit+Ranged"
  • idleunit: "Unit+!Domestic"

Good point! That's easy to fix, though:

hotkey.selection.idleworker = Period, NumPoint
hotkey.selection.idlewarrior = ForwardSlash, NumDivide
hotkey.selection.idleunit = BackSlash

also @pixel24 you can keep rapidly switching between the alt +. or alt + / or just keep one selection pressed down while right clicking those newly idle units to other destinations/tasks.
