Would like feedback on players' usage of hotkeys for squads.
Please do comment so that considerations can be taken whether to preserve or free the > 10 (Shift + #) squad hotkeys up for other uses.
(Not to worry there's still free keys, just that needs a bit of searching/or more multi-press to bind a new hotkey for a good fit.)

Anyone has occasions of assigning mercs to squad numbers > 10?
Possible scenarios will be
- Late game where you are running your Mini Merc Management Machine (4M) where their speciality is not about mass producing $, but corpses in many different sectors
- You always mentally assigned certain roles to certain squad number and/or you make use of Flugente's SquadNames.xml

Previously, all (1-20) squads can be recalled using hotkeys on both strategic and tactical screen.

Radio Operator feature uses ($ aka Shift + 4) to call up the skill menu, thereby Squad 14 & its mercs has to selected through other methods in tactical screen.

Implications on freeing > 10 (Shift + #) squad hotkeys:
In Strategic Screen,
Same squad group selection (> 10) will be done through manual Shift+LMB/Ctrl+LMB after sorting the mercs by assignment

In Tactical Screen,
- 'Shift+Space' to cycle through the squads OR
- searching and clicking on the merc in tactical screen
In both cases, screen will be 'centered' on them whereas using hotkeys, screen will remain where it is. The differences will be more evident when playing on big maps and it's good to have the alternative selection method present.

---------------------------------------
As such, proposed hotkey change for Radio Operator skill menu to 'Ctrl + /' 'Ctrl + ,'.
- 'Ctrl' calls up the 'hand' cursor meaning some action expected
- 'Ctrl + /''Ctrl + ,' is beside the 'Ctrl + .' for calling the menu for fill canteens and take off covert clothes etc
- '/' will centre on merc, convenient before calling the skill menu. (proximity for QWERTY keyboard)

To minimize confusion and ease transition, the 2 keys ($ and 'Ctrl + /''Ctrl + ,') can co-exist for a few months before the removal of $ to restore Squad 14 hotkey in tactical screen.
