Currently when switching between menus like the Inventory, Codex or even the Build menu. You have to press the designated key to open the menu then press again to close it. All menus behave in a similar fashion. The Build menu is a bit different that it also closes when you select a building or item.

What I would like to see when switching between menus is something more seamless and simplistic. Let's say you open the build menu, then you decide you want to check your inventory. You would simply press "TAB" to open the inventory. It would close the build menu automatically, no need to press "Q" to close it. When you're done checking your inventory, you'd simply press "TAB" to close it or switch back to the build menu by pressing "Q".

Another area where this would greatly improve the gameplay, is when you're in build mode and want to open up the build menu. Right now when in build mode, you have to press "Q" twice to open it. This is very counterproductive compare to using the hotkeys that transition seamlessly but the problem with hotkeys, there's only so many of them and some keys are difficult to reach.

I've suggested some improvements to the build menu in the past. I'll post the link below.
