So yeah,

I logged in, went to type in POS password and renamed my ship.

I went to BM a WH and added it to overview.

I tried to launch drones but instead deleted group.

I went to board ship but instead launched it.

I tried to show info on someone and accidently clicked the Give Money thing, thank god I read it.

So why move these when they were fine before?

Funny i thought it was just me, so they did move the (right click) menu interface options.

+1 - not saying the old menus were perfect, but this is annoying :P

They moved them in response to previous player input, so obviously this wasn't going to suit everyone.

Just pay attention to what you're clicking for the next couple of weeks and they'll start to be as natural as the old ones.

You think you are having an issue now, just wait until the hotkeys get rolled out and you forget to press spacebar before typing : )

On the plus though, the new layout is excellent and a long time due. It make things so much faster and smoother with everything in a contextual area rather than randomly scattered depending on the thing you right click on.

It won't change back so as advised just pay attention for a week and you will probably grow to enjoy it.

Yeah but this sorta comes under the "If its not broken dont fix it" rule, the old menus were horrid and layed out all wrong but everyone had come accustom to it.

Didnt see the need for the change tbh, also I keep telling drones to return and orbit rather than engage lol

That's just it - they were broken. You said so yourself. This actually falls under the heading of "fix it and suck it up til you get used to it."

New layout is far better.

How many times have you tried to click 'show info' and clicked 'start conversation' instead?
