Maybe change the name of the menu command to Attack + Move? My assumption is that a click and a keyboard shortcut will do the same thing, only with different input devices. (My solution would be to get rid of the "faster" click-skips-your-move solution because having to think about whether to use the keyboard uses up the saved time.)

Yeah, good idea.

But there's not much room to add "+ Move" on the line because you have the "Attack 01/02" on there, and the 01/02 is a good UI choice I'd hate to lose.

Might there be a way to make the Shift <a> and Shift <r> shortcuts more intuitive? Can the interface support a shift-click? You could make "click to attack" = full attack on target, end turn afterwards, while "shift-click" takes attacks one at a time and allows a move afterward (or during, in some cases).

The shift thing: Yes, possibly in the next update. Attack+Move could be displayed when you have only one attack. When you have several it would display "1/2".

Behavior of normal AoOs (I think): Each ranged attack from a threatened square provokes an AoO.

Behavior of game:
1) If you make four ranged attacks against two targets, you'll provoke on the first one against each target, but not the others.

Actually by the rules, you can only get one AoO for one kind of action. While you can get an AoO for one ranged attack and then for movement, you cannot get two for two ranged attacks in the same round.

If what you propose worked then circling around you target in melee would provoke multiple AoO from that target.

The SRD rules document has a specific line about moving in circles around a target,

This feat does not let you make more than one attack for a given opportunity, but if the same opponent provokes two attacks of opportunity from you, you could make two separate attacks of opportunity (since each one represents a different opportunity). Moving out of more than one square threatened by the same opponent in the same round doesn’t count as more than one opportunity for that opponent.


But I would figure that anything else would provoke one time per try. eg, if you tried to sunder someone's weapon with each attack in a full attack action, he could have four opportunity attacks. (Assuming Combat Reflexes.)

Did they have combat reflexes and enough dexterity for more than one AOO though?
