Fleet mechanics in Galactic Conquest

Is it just me or is separating a fleet a real pain in the ass? If I want to split two fleets because I decided, lets say, to invade in two different directions, i have to drag each one separately, and then combine them. Is there an easier way to do this, or does it not exist?

If you hold down CTRL you can select multiple ships and drag them across to a new fleet

Ok, I will try this out right away. I think I was holding shift and that was the problem.

Ahhh, I was holding down ctrl the whole time, until it came time to drag the ships out of the fleet. I’m used to ctrl selecting stuff then just dragging, without having to hold onto control. alrighty then
