There must be something rather exotic in this question. Why do we need it? Is it a kind of reminder for something?
Yes, I was asking this question myself and seeing it makes me ponder removing that exit confirmation dialog. However, please believe me there are users who, for some reasons, like having such petty options for numerous program actions, of which I am not a fan either.
Or, you can add questions such as "Do you want to update the Total Recall memory before exiting"? Sometimes I forget tp do it.
Actually, it would be great if this feature existed (if doesn't at all, for me), because sometimes I hit command+Q by mistake when I'm trying to do something else and, by closing CafeTran automatically, I'm forced to go and redefine all my settings again (like TMs and glossaries, resources and window configurations).
I confirm the usefulness of this dialog for the reason explained by Luisa above.
Since I often switch between English and French keyboard layouts, Ctrl+A (Select all) suddenly becomes Ctrl+Q in French, so I appreciate the safety net of having to confirm that I really wish to Quit CafeTran when I only wanted to select all…
Then, to make everyone happy an option to enable or disable this behaviour would be welcome. Not that one more click at the end of the work bothers me particularly, though.
Any chance we will have this (as well as/or a "Are you sure you want to close the current project") in a future update? Is it difficult to implement?
I've just closed CafeTran by mistake for the 100th time and had to reconfigure everything... #$@&%*!
>I've just closed CafeTran by mistake for the 100th time and had to reconfigure everything
Are you aware of the fact that these configurations can be saved in a project template? The creation of client-, subject- or project-related templates can be made easier, by copying default templates you've created:
I use project templates (isn't it automatic anyway?). I mean the selection&organisation of my resources, glossaries, etc on the screen.
>I use project templates (isn't it automatic anyway?).
No, you have to choose them manually from the Dashboard. Via the button:
> I mean the selection&organisation of my resources, glossaries, etc on the screen.
Yeah, but when I start a new project, a new template gets opened, right (with the Project Configuration window)? After logging out, by selecting from one of the latest projects on my list, I go back to that template?
I will try the window you indicate once I finish my project. I don't want to lose anything else :D
By the way, my having inadvertently closed the project today actually resulted in losing ALL segment notes and ALL bookmark indications too :/ It's the second time it happens this week, which is unfortunate because I had a lot of useful notes and bookmarks. A "Close confirmation" button would (temporarily) solve this issue.
Thanks so much for the tip alwayslockyourbike! This feature is just wonderful!
