    Try using the numeric number pad:

    789
    456
    123

    4 and 6 are left and right; 7, 9, 1 and 3 "diagonals"; 8 and 2 to go up or down.

    If you don't have a numeric keypad (laptop, etc) the Home, End, Page up, and Page down keys will similarly move on a diagonal.

    Or click your unit and hold and drop it on the city!

    or if you hold the mouse button down on a square, it'll change to a "go" cursor. Let go and the active unit will move there (beware it can sometimes take the long way around the map. I have a feeling this occurance has something to do with the (0,y) line on the grid.)

    Karl, in this game you "move onto" the square which you want to attack, whether it holds units or a city. You cannot attack your own cities or those of your allies, and some units like Settlers and Transports cannot attack anything. You cannot "shell from afar" like in other games.

    BTW, welcome to CivFanatics!
