I finally fixed the issue. Fix is available in Development Branch 1.53.132440 (you can switch to Development Branch via Steam by right clicking Arma 3 in your Library, go to Properties, select BETAS tab, select development - Development Build and then wait for Steam to download the data) and will be part of 1.54 Stable update.

Thank you for your feedback and have a very nice day!

This issue is still present in version 1.54 Stable.

Yup, still the same in 1.54 stable.

Hello all,

I discovered, that this fix has been accidentally reverted. We will re-fix it as soon as possible.

Thank you for understanding!

Will be fixed in the next Steam Dev update. Thank you for your patience.
