Ability to do PARTIAL UPDATES of orders via CSV

Combine shipments

How do I fix this issue? When I combine orders, the window freezes? BTW by removing the human support was a typical bait and switch on the service with SS. Please let us know how to get questions answered when dealing with your software. Horrible!
