Default Avoid pop-up of communication menu

Hello and merry Xmas!

Can I somehow avoid pop-up of the communication menu, e.g. after requesting startup and receiving startup clearance the menu immediately pops up again and switches to ATC menu.
I have problems with this since ... ever!? "Easy communication" is off, "radio assist" is also off.

This automatic pop-up often interferes:
.) When switching to outside views since I don't see the communication menu all the time when using VR
.) When using VoiceAttack, which doesn't consider the comm menu open and thus the request go into nowhere

Please help, this is a nasty thing since a long time for me (and for sure for others).

Thanks and kind regards,
TOViper

I greatly appreciate detailed instructions how to disable the hateful auto pup-up comm menu.
I don't know what is vaicom pro.
(The menu can popup in the F10 map view also, in sneaky invisible mode)
Menu blocking look around with mouse (my only good method) blocking changing views in play and replay. Abort inbound and resume mission rather than go to cockpit view. Opens up in totally unwanted page. Opens up after asking refuel and rearm...
The only one existence reason is the loop section of AAR, when we ask for "clear contact"

Vaicom pro is a plug-in for VoiceAttack . The two of them cost about 20$ total , and vastly improve immersion by providing realistic voice coms/commands to all DCS AI com menu functions . Very helpful in VR as well .

Above is a link to Vaicom Pro

I don't have anything to against the "automatic loop" functions, when a submenu is entered depending on conditions.

The problem I have is that the comm menu appears, with which I always struggle around, and I simply cannot get rid of this behaviour.
Please ED, can you add user-options for enabling and disabling automatic pop-up of the comm menu?



This I would HIGHLY appreciate!

Thank you and kind regards,
TOViper

Question

ED, have you ever read this thread?

Can we please have an option to decide if comms-menu is allowed/disallowed to pop up, and to allow/disallow entering a context specific submenu?

Is this somehow possible?

Thank you in advance and kind regards,
TOViper
