Sorry to report, the beta is exhibiting the same behaviour for me as did the previous issues.

No clue.
The menu are greyed or just not responding? Which ones if not all of them? The map is still responding? If you resize the windows does it reactivates the menus?
Sorry this is so elusive matai. The drop down menus for grib, routings and routes are the ones which cease to drop down. Left clicking on then lights them up purple okay, but no drop down menu appears. Right clicking on them still works giving a drop down menu. Everything else in QT appears to keep functioning..nmea instruments, tracking, etc etc. I did try resizing the window last time it happened but it didn't help. cheers.
What was the last action you performed in qtVlm?
I routed and saved the routing. But after that, it was still working. Then I moved the QT window below other windows I was using, mainly Chrome browser windows.

When the time came to do the next routing, I clicked on the QT window to bring it to the top, and the drop tabs weren't working.

The qt window would have been beneath other windows for around six hours (time between WXs) though occasionally I return and check progress during that 6 hour period. Somewhere in that time frame, it suddenly stops working properly.

This is very probably a bug in Qt, not in qtVlm. A new version of the library is due this month, and I can see many fixes concerning menus. Not exactly your case, but not far.
Wait and see.
Many thanks matai, we very much appreciate your contribution to SOL and also for dealing with ongoing isuues. I wonder of you remember me..I helped you with an English version of the QtVlm manual a few years ago, before you had any real connection to SOL. It's been quite a journey! :)
Ah yes I remember :)... It's been a long time since.
5.6-1 loaded, let's see how she goes.
I don't think this menu problem is fixed in 5.6.1. I am waiting for the next Qt version and when available (this week?) I will post a patched released. That is my best hope so far.

Melbourne to Osaka Prelude 2024

Welcome once again to what these days is Sailonline’s almost annual virtual Melbourne to Osaka Yacht Race. In real life, this double-handed 5500 nm race between these two sister cities, one deep in the southern hemisphere, the other high in the northern hemisphere, is run every four to five years, and is planned to be held again in 2025, so this race is a Prelude in partnership with the Melbourne Osaka Cup 2025 organising committee collaborating with the Ocean Racing Club of Victoria (ORCV), and the Sandringham (SYC) and Osaka Hokko (OHYC) yacht clubs. On this occasion, we’ll be racing the well-known First 40, a popular size of boat for a long-distance double-handed race. With the doldrums unavoidably lying across the track, you can expect to be at virtual sea for at least a month!
