Below Zero: PC with XBox Controller Hot Bar Assignment

Subnautica Version - 27520
Description - Must use D-Pad "Up" to assign item to hot bar from inventory. The D-Pad is also used to navigate the inventory. This means you need to select the item underneath the one you want to assign to your hotbar, and then press D-Pad "Up". If your inventory is in such a state where there is no item directly below the item you want to assign, you cannot assign the item to the hot bar.
Reproduction steps - Get on a PC, and install an XBox controller (either 360 or One). Load the game, and enable controller support. Open the inventory.

    Yes! Thank you. Same problem here. I tried to get around it by assigning items via the numbers on the keyboard and then navigating the inventory with the stick. But annoying, most definitely.

    This bug is very annoying, because the tools on the panel are constantly shifting. Developers need to pay close attention to this bug, since playing on a gamepad is very inconvenient.
    More bugs when using a gamepad:
    - If you open the inventory while sitting in the sea transport, and then close it (button B on the gamepad), then the character also exits the transport.
    - In the original Subnautica, the moving of items was assigned to the R2 button. Now this is button A. Because of this, errors occur, sometimes out of habit, you press the wrong button and throw the item out of inventory.

    Also, LT and RT are mixed up.

    That can be fixed by going into the steams controller options for the game and setting it to forced off.

    The easiest way to do this is to put steam in big picture mode, find the game in the library then select it, then select Manage Game the go into controller options and select 'Forced Off'
