Working as Designed Can't turn off Autopause

After updating to The game will autopause while in the settings menu, regardless of whether it is on or not. According to memory, this should not be the case. I distinctly recall this not being the case earlier in my playthrough of 1.4, and I did not see anything in the patch notes regarding this.
Not to be confused with the inventory menu, which works fine.


I think this was an intentional change so that you can tamper with - sometimes quite fiddly or maze-like - GUI/game settings without getting slaughtered. That said, I cannot confirm as to whether or not this is an intentional change (though I would assume so)

The Settings menu is now always-autopause, as of 1.4.

The autopause setting impacts other elements such as the inventory or bestiary menus.
