For those Who are not following GitHub i posted a discussion about Eesdr3 band and mode selection menu.
I don’t like the way it currently works. What it does is that Once you select your band/mode, the menu stays open until you click to another item or somewhere on the display.
A proper way to works, in my opinion, would be that once selected mode or band the menu close by itself instead of staying open.
Before suggesting to modify it, I'd like to check if it bother just me.

I agree with your assessment. I would prefer that the menu closes after you have made a selection. Right now it requires a separate step to manually close the menu.

Hi Max. I agree with you. it is a little annoying to have to close it manually; I like your idea that it should automatically close once you have selected a band or mode.

Good Morning all,
the menu behaviour is going to be fixed in the next 0.11.0 public release.

I my opinion the best method for menu behavior is to keep menu open while the mouse pointer is hovering anywhere within the menu. After the user moves the mouse pointer away from the menu after approximately a 250ms delay the menu closes. This may be a good behavior for most but not all pop up menus.

Anyway just thinking out loud.

Keep up the great work EE Team!

Menu with hover-open has a danger that it will be accidentally opened and then require 250ms to close. When nothing wrong for common user, this may be annoying for contestman and expeditions, where pileup/quick operations are in place.

"Close on selection" is a good compromise at this stage and it is already implemented, just wait for 0.11, it is there.

Yes you are correct, the original idea Close On Selection is best.
