Moving as one + keep formation

Is there a key shortcut to have your selection march forward while maintaining their formation?

I mean, if there's multiple lines, they keep their lines and general positions within those lines ...

    You have to group them and lock. They will keep their formation and the pace of the slowest unit unless they are flyers.

He knew those wild, black curls and the obsidian star on a velvet ribbon. What he didn’t know and had never seen before was the face. It was a face of rage and fury, the face of the goddess of vengeance, destruction and death." - Time of contempt

    Either alt+movement order or ctrl-g.

    Select all of the units and use the Up arrow.

    As per above, select the units and lock-group them (ctrl-G). You can then move them with the alt+click&drag order and or hold ctrl to pivot them.

    Don't use "J" (face other direction) on multiple units/grouped units.

    You cannot move multiple locked-groups by doing this, though as it will mess up everything again. Just group them all and move all at once, or move each group independently.
