hi, i dont know if this question has been asked, it probably has but here goes
is there any way to split my infintry or archers in two groups during the battle? i know you can assign them from party screen before battles, but is there a way to do it during a battle? for example, if i have my infintry in a shield wall, i would like to have 2 groups of archers at either side firing into oncoming infintry charge.

select the group (1 2 3 4....) and press f3 then f5 and choose the formation you want to add them too and move the slider to the amount you want to add, the default is all of them.
It works in normal battle but in siege they seem to revert back to the giant blobs they start in.

You can merge different groups with that same command too. If you do that by accident, you might as well retreat because separating them back in real time is a pain in the ass.

Last version I played troops started sieges with "delegate command" on by default. Turn it off and you should be able to merge troops
