! Description
|-
| K || [[File:Exercise transparent.png|28px]] Exercise
| Clicking the Exercise button or pressing the K key {{key press|K}} will tell all of the divisions in the command to commence the exercise order. This order cancels any battleplans but not existing movement orders. Exercising troops have very low Organization, so should be kept out of combat. Reference [[Command group#Exercise|Exercise]] for more detail.
|-
| Shift + K || [[File:Exercise until trained transparent.png|28px]] Exercise until trained
| Using {{key press|Shift}}+{{key press|K}} (or {{key press|Shift}}+{{key press|LMB}}) lets troops train until the reach the '''regular''' [[Experience#Unit_experience|experience level]] and then stop on an individual basis.
|-
| None || [[File:Naval Invasion.png|28px]] Naval Invasion
| Clicking the Naval Invasion button after selecting your divisions will highlight all potential launch ports as a turquoise diagonal stripe pattern. After clicking on the desired launch port, it will become a highlighted blue diagonal stripe pattern. Then right click on a highlighted green diagonal stripe pattern coastal province that you wish to invade. The highlighted green diagonal stripe pattern coastal province will turn to a highlighted orange diagonal stripe pattern if done correctly. Once the plan is activated, the invasion will begin to prepare and reserve convoys from your country's pool. Reference [[Battle plan#Naval Invasion|Naval Invasion]] for more detail.
|-
| None || [[File:Paradrop.png|28px]] Paratroop Order
| Clicking the Paratroop Order button, after selecting your paratroop divisions, will highlight all potential "takeoff point" air bases as a turquoise diagonal stripe pattern (if transport planes are based there) or as a yellow diagonal stripe pattern (if no transport planes are based there). After clicking on the desired "takeoff point" air base (requires transport planes in that base), it will become a highlighted blue diagonal stripe pattern. Then right click on a highlighted green diagonal stripe pattern land province that you wish to designate as the drop location. The highlighted green diagonal stripe pattern land province will turn to a highlighted orange diagonal stripe pattern if done correctly. Once the plan is activated, the plan will be carried out provided that you have at least 70% air superiority and sufficient transport planes. Reference [[Battle plan#Paradrop|Paradrop]] and [[Air warfare#Air superiority|Air Superiority]] for more detail.
|-
| Z || [[File:Front Line.png|28px]] Front Line
| After going into this mode by clicking the Front Line button or pressing the Z key {{key press|Z}}, left click a border with another country to place a front for the selected units along the entire border with that country. Alternatively, you can right click and drag to customize the size of the front line. Note: It is not currently possible to right click and drag a front line across borders with multiple nations unless you are at war. Reference [[Battle_plan#Front Line and Offensive Line|Front Line]] for more detail.
|-
| X || [[File:Offensive Line.png|28px]] Offensive Line
| Can only be used with an army that has at least one Front Line already created. After activating by clicking the Offensive Line button or pressing the X key {{key press|X}}, right click and drag to form the line you want your troops to advance to. While holding down right click, hit Tab {{key press|Tab}} to cycle through the possible "starting points" for the arrow. This allows you to create intricate multi-step battleplans. Reference [[Battle_plan#Front Line and Offensive Line|Offensive Line]] for more detail.
|-
| Shift + X || [[File:Spearhead.png|28px]] Spearhead| Can only be used with an army that has at least one Front Line already created. After activating by clicking the Spearhead button or pressing the Shift + X key {{key press|Shift}}{{key press|X}}, right click and drag to draw the spearhead line. Compared to the Offensive Line, the Spearhead will aggressively try to take all provinces that were there when the order was first painted. Spearheads are preferred when you need to do overlapping encirclements, cutting off the enemy, or for more controlled, smaller thrusts into enemy territory. Spearheads tend to be narrow thrusts that can be especially useful for armored divisions. Reference [[Battle_plan#Spearhead|Spearhead]] for more detail. Note: The Spearhead Order [[File:Spearhead.png|24px22px]] is only available with the [[Together for Victory|Together for Victory]] expansion [[File:Together for Victory icon.png|24px22px]].
|-
| C || [[File:Fallback line.png|28px]] Fallback Line
| Click the Fallback Line button or press the C key {{key press|C}}, then right click and drag to create a defensive line anywhere (not just on a border). This allows you to station divisions in specific provinces or along a specific set of terrain (like a river). Reference [[Battle_plan#Fallback_Line|Fallback Line]] for more detail.
|-
| V || [[File:Garrison Area.png|28px]] Garrison Area
| Click the Garrison Area button or press the V key {{key press|V}} to activate this mode, then select the states for your army to be stationed in. When you are done assigning, click the Garrison Area button or hit V {{key press|V}} again to exit this mode. The selected divisions will spread out among the states and occupy cities, airbases, and naval bases. This is generally best used for guarding coastlines or important points in rear areas vs paradrops. Note that unlike other orders, if a Garrison order is assigned to any part of an army, the rest of the army cannot be assigned any other order without first removing the garrison order. It is an exclusive order. Therefore, an army with a garrison order should only include units that will be assigned to that order. Adding any new units to the army automatically has them join the garrison order. Reference [[Battle plan#Garrison Area|Garrison Area]] for more detail.
|-
| Ctrl || [[File:Divisions assignment mode.png|28px]] Divisions Assignment Mode
| Click the Divisions Assignment Mode button or while holding control {{key press|ctrl}}, left click on a battle plan to assign the currently selected units to that plan.

|-
| Ctrl + H|| [[File:Unassign Divisions.png|28px]] Unassign Divisions Mode
| Clicking the Unassign Divisions Mode button, or while holding control and the H key {{key press|ctrl}} {{key press|H}}, will unassign the currently selected divisions from their orders.
|-
| Alt || [[File:Edit mode.png|28px]] Edit Mode
| Click the Edit Mode button or while holding Alt {{key press|alt}}, you can edit existing battleplans. Alt {{key press|alt}} + right click and drag alters the length and shape of front lines, offensive lines, and fallback lines. Alt {{key press|alt}} + Left Click alters offensive arrows to bend or change their origin point (can even change the origin point to the end of another offensive line).
|-
| Del || [[File:Delete Order.png|28px]] Delete Order
| Clicking the Delete Order button or pressing the Delete key {{key press|Del}} allows you to selectively remove individual battleplans assigned to the current army. Right-clicking the Delete Order button will delete all orders of the currently selected army.
