menu selection problem after P3D v4.2 upgrade

Further confirmation, try this:

- Open the default ATC menu, select option 1

- Open GSX (or any other Simconnect app), and option 1 will be automatically selected!

It's clearly some issue happening entirely inside the sim.

Very true indeed, again I stand corrected.

Great stuff.  I too use numbers for my chase plane views.  I will reassign then and test again and advise.

Update.

 

I changed all my chaseplane assigned keys.  For example where as before I used the '1' key for a particular view, now I use LALT+SHIFT+z but that doesn't fix it.  The only way I can get chaseplane to play fair is by removing all assigned keys to my view presets.  This means I have to click on each view preset.

 

I am going to try to ensure that whatever key I set the view to, that key isn't assigned to any function in P3d and report.

I'm getting the same problem even when I don't assign buttons to my chaseplane views...

 

I am going to uninstall EVERYTHING, format the drives and reinstall!!!

I can also confirm that the the last pressed key is given further to the next menu: e.g. if you open ATC and choose an option, the same option will be given to the next pop up menu e.d: Ctrl+F11 for ASP4 or Ctrl+F12 for GSX. I mention I have no Nums for CP views!

Further my workaround is to use my mouse to navigate (choose) the menues ;). In this way you will have no issues at all.

For PRO-ATC users, change the Inflight menu access key to V instead of 1, it works fine.

Special thanks to VVAS for the solution !

Do you use chase plane + gsx + pro ATC + active sky?

Unfortunately for me the 'v' workaround doesn't work.  I've done a clean install of P3D and ALL add-ons/flight sim related software.  

I changed my chaseplane assigned keys to CTRL+F1, F2.... and SHIFT+F1,F2... (before I used the 1,2,3, keys and ALT+1,2,3...)

I access Active Sky via the Addon-ons menu.

I 've set Pro ATC shortcut key to 'v'.

I have FSUIPC 5.123e.

Thus I don't use the numeric keys for anything.  Yet the problem persists. 

For me to enjoy use P3D now, I have to use my mouse to select the Add-ons menu and then AS, let the problem happen and then use mouse to select Add-ons GSX or press v for Pro ATC.  

 Really hope LM sorts this out.

This is an FSUIPC issue.....update to 5.124 and the problems should go away.

No, it's not. It's just a P3D bug that has surfaced in 4.2 only, and it happens even with no addons installed, and can replicated even with the default sample app from the SDK.

It strikes me as odd that LM haven’t released a hot fix for this given the far reaching difficulties it brings. Would have thought it was easy to track down the problem too given it only started in 4.2

Same thing here!!!  Im following the advice of pausing the sim.

Why isn't this issue being addressed? I can't use my add-ons. Everything is so overpriced in the sim community, and yet nobody cares about problems...
