    I usually press "h" to hold position. I have no clue why they'd change The commands from The original dota.

    Press S to cancel your current action or stop. Press H to hold position.

    Try yelling in your mic. They implemented some natural language processing last patch so it might work. Make sure you use your push to talk.

    Update your command setting to legacy mode (S stops your hero while you hold it, attacks/follows nearest enemy when release).

    It's useful for last hitting...S spamming gets you the exact right time to last hit.

    H is mostly useful to remain hidden into fog while playing supports (waiting action to happen and enter as surprise factor) and split pushing with Dagger/Blink heroes (also hidding into fog).

    Instead of s-spamming you should simply use attack move instead.

    There are too many situations where that setting can potentially screw you over and all the benefits can be reaped with the use of A-move.
