Creating a character after the camp update

I understand why the encounter button was removed from the left side, but this creates problems for a new character and I assume for any other encounter. Since the encounter button is gone, I have to enter the main menu then exit back to the game in order to continue the encounter after using a skill.  If I'm missing something obvious someone please correct me.In the first encounter for example:-I use botany skill, this causes the dogman to back off, I can now select another skill to use-I use medic skill to get the medkit, I place it in my hand on the item screen-What now?  No encounter button, no way I can see to get back to the encounter.-I open the main menu, then close it. I am back in the encounter.-I use night vision skill to get the multitool, I place it in my hand on the item screen.-What now? None of the buttons take me back to the game.-I hit escape to go to the main menu, then escape again to close it.  I am back in the encounter.-I jump out the window. Etc etc etc.New players are going to be completely lost.  From personal experience I was slightly confused by the first encounter, but I used the encounter button to keep going.  I discovered a game I really enjoy.  If I was coming into the game cold at this point I would probably quit.This is serious. The game is getting links across the internet, and when new players come in they find what looks like an unplayable game.  People are not going to try to figure it out, they are going to close the tab. Please address this issue ASAP.UPDATE - I have tried going without the botany skill, same problem. I have tried to reduce size since I play on a large TV. Neither one helped. Anyone out there see an option to go back to the encounter that I am missing?

Hey gordonfremen!That sounds like a pretty big UI bug, though I'm having trouble reproducing the issue. I've tried the above steps for the new beta build, both in the embedded 0.927b and fullscreen 0.927b, as well as locally in my debugger. In all cases, after getting the medkit as a reward, I could click on the "Items" button to add the kit to my hand, and there was still an "Encounter" button to click back to. It's the last button in the lower left corner, with people on it, and it should have a blinking green light on it.Is that button there for you? Also, does the "E" key help at all? I think the spacebar should also step forward in the encounter and return you to that screen, if needed.Let me know if any of the above help. I agree we want new users to be able to figure out the game, so if this new button UI is too confusing, perhaps I need to adjust it.

I tried again just now and everything worked perfectly.  It may have been a screen resolution problem or something, but the button is there for me now.  I guess I'm the only one who experienced it, must be on my end.  Sorry for the unnecessary PM.

No sweat, I'm glad for a PM alerting me to a potential show-stopping bug. Better for me to receive an early false alarm than to let a game-breaking bug sit there all weekend!
