Getting Rid of Escape Jumping you to the wrong Menu Pane

Ever since 4.0 there is a MenuSuite "feature" that has really annoyed me. If you open a form from one menu pane, then click on a new menu pane, then close the form, you jump to the original menu pane.

Beneath all of the MenuSuite buttons, to the left of the little arrows, right click the mouse.

Select Navigation Pane options.

uncheck Track open windows.

And your life will be whole again ;)

    Yes, it is annoying, that option should really be unticked by default if you ask me.

    Thanks Girish, that is a really helpful tip, that was annoying the crap out of me. I was up to a point where I opened another form from the same menu to keep the system from jumping back.

    Glad I could help, Daniel. It's always especially nice to pay something back to the big contributors to the community.

    Wow, we don't use that new fangled city slicker type menu. =P~

    But with that statement I can imagine that it must really be annoying :lol::lol:

    Well I'm happy that they've redesigned it in nav 2009. But I'm sure we will run into other annoying things.
