    For example when Chen is takin a new creep it gonna appear in next (for example its 3rd group) control group and get removed from it on death/control loss?
    Re-binding creeps every time sucks
    its takes like 1 sec to rebind but they can make something like in hon
    there is mod that saves all the control groups of every hero u are playing so u need to do it in the first game with the hero and than u dont give a fuck

    A thing you can do is bind "select hero" to "1", and "select all other units" to "2". "1" will always select your hero. "2" will always select all other units like meepo clones, warlock golem, spirit bear, or any creeps you control, and illusions. So when I play meepo I used to bind my main to "1", and clones to "2", and all meepos to "3". Now it does "1" and "2" automatically. I don't think there's a option to select all units but a keybind can be done for it somehow.

    You can put these in your autoexec if you don't want to overwrite your F1 and F4 binds.

    bind "your key here" "+dota_camera_follow" //select hero
    bind "your key here" "dota_select_all_others" //select all other units

    I was thinking about it but i was too lazy also maybe add the hero health and the icon on the top left like Lone Druid to chen or to all the heroes and when u pick illusion rune it will show them there or helm of the dominator creep

    Agreed. Thought about this couple times, would be nice
    ALSO you need to highlight the current selected group (if it is selected)
