Floating menu - reset to top level menu when showing menu

I've created a floating menu that has its "visibility toggled via action", and is set to "close after button press". I have a "Show floating menu" keyboard shortcut in BTT that I use to call the menu. The floating menu has a sub menu containing some "Paste Text" buttons.

When I enter my "Show floating menu" keyboard shortcut, open the submenu, and choose one of the "Paste Text" buttons, BTT correctly pastes the text and closes the menu. But, when I enter my "Show floating menu" keyboard shortcut again, it opens to the sub menu, not the top level menu. Is there a setting to have it always open at the top level menu?


Good point, I think this is currently not possible. I'll add a way to achieve this later today.

Just MHO.

(1) Suggest sub-menu of floating menu can define it's own min width/height normal/hover.
(2) A dummy seperator menu item for items on menu and sub-menu
Thank you for listening.

4.420 (alpha) now has an action to close a submenu, you can add that to your action sequence:

Thank you so much for this. This is just the feature I have been looking for and after paying for BTT for almost 15 years, this is the first time I've created an account to say thank you.

Thank you Andreas for turning this around so quickly - I will give it a try!
