Showing my penchant for indecision... maybe I won't make any changes after all. How critical is this? I can't seem to resolve all requests for this issue because I've discovered that I've been going in circles.

I found old emails discussing the fact that Left was jumping to the Main Menu rather than returning to the custom STV. I changed it. Then, there were emails saying that Left was using Home to return to the Main Menu, but this caused problems where you couldn't use Left to jump to the Main Menu if it was a parent of the current menu because Home was issued & that returned the user to the custom STV. So, I changed it again such that Left started jumping directly to the Main Menu again instead of using Home. Now, the request is to have Left return to the custom STV instead of the Main Menu.

I suppose I could add yet another custom STV mode global variable so the calling STV could specify what it wants to do... but is it needed?

Currently, Home can be used to return to the custom STV. If you use Back and reach the end of the menu history, you'll return to the custom STV on the next usage of Back. If you manage to reach the Main Menu, then Exit's submenu has an option to return to the custom STV.

If I make the change again, this will break if you have it set to return to the custom STV when Home is used:

This does seem to be working now as I expect it to, so no change is needed there.

So.... do I leave it alone or is another variable needed to control how Left returns to the Main Menu on the menus where it does that? I just want to make sure that any changes for this don't get reversed again later.
