Close Options

Postby splashmike » Tue Aug 23, 2016 10:51 am

In the "File" Menu, what is the difference between the "Close" Option [CNTRL W] and the "Exit" Option [CNTRL Q]? Both seem to shut down the entire program. I would have thought that the Close Option would close the current recipe but leave the program running. Not the case, so I cannot figure out why I would use one versus the other. Any help understanding these Options would be appreciated. Thanks.

Typically, on Windows an application exits when the last window is closed. So, using File->Close has the same effect as File->Exit when there is only one window remaining open. On a Mac, the typical behavior is that an application stays running even when no windows are left open.
