I can't believe this is still with us.
When I let go of a menu I want it to stay open until I click it again.

Not sure what your talking about but you may be experiencing a one-of bug that nobody else is having.

More details please http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I think he means the aircraft menus in QMB. They tuely are annoying. One false move just as you reach for the plane and the menu closes.

I totally agree. The Graphic User Interface of the game is pretty weak.

Just two sides Axis and Allies? You can't pit country against country? Snapping windows? Not being able to choose aircraft by their manufacturer or year? Really corny.

But theres no point it asking we have a better chance of seeing the P-61 than this.

The FMB Snap menu closing is so bad, when I used to scroll down the il2skins airplane menu (the List of airplanes looks the same as the FMB airplane List and caused immediate psycho-allergic reaction), I would start to PANIC and turn Hysterical thinking the il2skins airplane menu would Snap shut. Such has the FMB Snap effected my Life. To this day I have nitemares about any Snap closing any menu List.

I knwo there are people who want more planes, and there are people who want fixes, and there's little point in arguing about what's more important, but I'll just say that I personally would really prefer improvements and fixes to the things I use all the time instead of a plane I might try once or twice and can certainly live without.

I agree with that, it's such a pain to find an airplane in the menu. I wish if I click "p" for example, the highlight would move to the airplanes with a name starting with "p". This seems pretty basic since I always use it in other programs and the internets.

I hate that too. A hot key or something that keeps it open would be great.

Oleg said BoB+ FMB will have New Features, but otherwise be much the same as Olde FMB. Lets hope one New Feature is a change in interface coding.

You may know this already, but in case you don't:
In QMB left click on the aircraft list you want - the drop-down menu will appear. Without moving the cursor, left click again and the drop-down menu will disappear, but the aircraft selection box will remain highlighted (in black). Now you can simply scroll through all the aircraft available until you find the one you want. This is much more stable and less irritating than using the drop-down menus (which, as you say, tend to close at inopportune moments).
It works for all parts of QMB as well as the 'skins' sub menu. You can scroll through weapons loadouts, pilots, squadrons or aircraft types, but it's most useful for zeroing in on the skin you want. As you scroll through the list, the skin on the arming screen model will instantly change to suit your choice.

Don't let go the mouse button. If is not on the scroll bar you are in trouble http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif . But it won't close till you lose the grip with the mouse button. Simply move the mouse over the scroll bar and release... then grab again if you need to scrool down more.

It's anoyng but we can live with it. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif
