Pause Mission/Take Items
Minor issue, easily fixed.

When you are in combat and near an item, the "Take Items" is in the location where the "Pause Zone" normally is, and "Pause Zone" is below it.

When you move the mouse over to hit "Take Items" it is very easy to hit "Pause Zone" instead. This is because "combat" (or the pause after combat while you are still in combat mode) ends and "Pause Zone snaps back into the space where "Take Items" was a second ago. Now you have paused the zone and either wasted a few seconds of pause you might need later or annoyed your teammates.

If you made "Pause Zone" a static item that didn't move and put "Take Items" above or below it the issue would be 100% resolved.

I know some will come to suggest hitting F to take the items, but that doesn't seem to work when there are multiple items needing picked up.

I would suggest that the take items button stay on the side of the screen even outside of combat. The dialoge box could still pop up outside of combat.
