#2884 Sub-menus disappear too quickly


The drop down for Favorites under the Xenea theme is detached from the link. The drop down stays around the region of the Family Tree Clippings Cart while the link is anchored to the right of the screen. With a wide screen it is very tricky to get to the dropdowns (Dragging across to it is one way. If you move at the speed of light you can also make it before the dropdown dissapears).
This issue is pecualiar to he Xenea theme.
With a narrow window (say 1024 * 768) is is probably not too bad but with a wide window (say 1920 * 1080) it is very difficult.

    The Xenea theme is working as intended.

    I don't have a problem, but I notice that the behaviour depends on the path taken by the mouse cursor. If you move the mouse cursor down before moving it left, you can have problems hitting the selection menu. If you move the mouse cursor left before moving it down, you have fewer problems.

    You can change the Favorites menu to be like what you see in, say, the Cloudy theme. Change line 131 of "themes/xenea/header.php" so that the call on function print_favorite_selector() has a zero argument instead of 1, like so:

    The line number is 131 in PGV version 4.3.0 (the "SVN" version). It's more-or-less the same for the other versions.

    Fixed in SVN 7068. All sub-menus will now be somewhat more persistent. They will now clear after 1 second instead of after 1/10 second.
