How Do I Throw A Spear?

So, stupid question I know. I've got the spear equipped, and have the ranged attack selected via the mouse wheel. The target is within 10 range, so that's not the issue. I don't see any attack option for ranged attack, and there isn't even one listed on the wiki as a combat option (

I managed to survive the first combat without a scratch just using melee, but I really need to figure out how to actually throw the spear in the future. I'm sure it's something amazingly simple that I'm missing, but if anyone could help me out, I would appreciate it.

You cannot attack in a turn when you changed the attack mode. So change mode and do something else - on the new turn you should be able to attack. Also, if you don't have the Ranged skill, maximum ranged distance for your weapons is halved, so the range for the spear is 5 in that scenario.

Thanks; figured it out. Though I had the Ranged skill in my skill selections, a bug (which I reported was preventing the Ranged skill from actually working. I moved what slot it was in, and now I can throw properly. Thanks for the input; the bit about the range being halved you mentioned is what made me able to figure out the problem.
