* - Puts the AI in control of a worker's tile improvements. This is not recommended unless you are active in a game but forced to be idle for some turns. Edit
** - Do provides generic access to legal unit commands, including some options that may be inaccessible by hot-keys or standard menus. For example, "Help Build Wonder" for a Caravan that is already in a city but would use all its movement points by exiting. Edit
*** - Rare "road types" such as Canal or River are more easily accessed by the orders buttons or context menu. Some clients require hitting D to change "Extra Target" before giving the R command. (Canals, Rivers, and MagLevs are not in all rulesets, and require special technologies) Edit
