Silly Question: What does ALT + 2 do?

Hello, all,

Key bindings is a reflex :) In WoW, I have bound "Mount" with ALT + 2 since... beginning of times.

So it still happens often in GW2 that when I want to mount, as a reflex, I press ALT + 2. And then, I invariably get the message: "You cannot set or clear markers without the commander present in this map"

So it ended bugging me: What am I asking GW2 to do when I press ALT + 2 and what does this message mean?

Thank you in advance for your answer.

    In Options under the mouse icon all the way at the bottom is the list for key bindings for the commander markers. Just unbind them.

    You can replace keybinds. ALT+2 is tied to squad marking. You can shift these 0-9 to use the number pad (which shows up as NUM 0 - NUM 9), and you can appropriate your ALT+2 for mount. If you're not in a squad with available commander, then squad markers can't do anything.

    As @Loosmaster.8263 has stated, chances are rebinds don't overwrite existing ones, in which case you will have to rebind the other key, or unbind them.
