Anyone know why my troops won't respond to my orders? I assume there's a game mechanic behind it, if so could someone please explain it to me?

I had the same glitch with the F1, F2, F3, F4 etc...

If this is the case, then you need to press 'Fn + F1,F2,F3' or 'Alt + F1,F2,F3' when giving commands.
