Sorry for the numerous updates in the last week. I'm fighting against an intermittent issue probably caused by Windows preventing users from closing the popup menu by clicking outside of the menu or by hitting the Escape key as they would do normally. I tried various method to get around this issue but, in the end, these changes had side-effects worst than the initial issue. For this reason, I reverted some of these changes and will start a beta test with users accepting to give feedback about this issue and some new features (see website page "Support / Beta Test Page"). Until this issue is resolved, I added the QAP Feature named "Close this menu" that you can insert in the main menu to close the menu by clicking this item.
