Moving object with [shift] between chest and inventory prevents exit form inventor with ESC

Game mode: Online private
Type of issue: Bug
Server type: PvE
Region: NA


Shift-mouse move allows to move X number of object from inventory to a chest or a station instead of the full stack. When you move and drop something while holding shift it will bring a small dialog allowing you to enter number of items to move. Once you move it ESC button stops working and you can not exit from your inventory until you click at any point outside of your inventory or chest/station inventory, i.e. somewhere on the background.


Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:

  1. One a chest
  2. Move anything holding shift
  3. Press ESC
  4. Nothing happens
  5. Mouse click on the background
  6. Press ESC
  7. You get back to the game

I’ve recently noticed this as well.

  1. I’ll open up a container
  2. shift+drag item from one container to/from my inventory
  3. after the item is moved and I’m done with moving stuff around, I used to hit ESC on the keyboard for a fast exit of the inventory screen…now I have to click somewhere else in the inventory (blank space) and then I can hit ESC to get out.

Sure, it’s only an extra click on an empty space to ‘allow’ the ESC button exit, but why the need for the extra click now all of a sudden?

clearly a bug in UI

This sounds like the similar to a bug that I reported a while back, see closed forum thread:

yes looks like the same but, reported Feb 16, 4 months later still not fix, Funcom at its best

Hey there,

We’re aware of this issue but it’s currently not prioritized.
Apologies for the frustration.

with all due respect, how hard can this be to fix :slight_smile: ? seriously I’d guess it will be one or max two lines of code somewhere and could literally take and hour max to fix ;). this sort of small but frustrating bugs are ruining overall impression from the game as it looks like the game is abandoned

also if it is a know issue and it has been reported multiple times and confirmed why I do not see it on your Trello board here https://trello.com/b/9QvGiC1W/conan-exiles-community-reports ?

Not every reported issue is listed on the Trello board. Usually those that are reported a large number of times by our community and are not exploits.
