When Moneydance is open on my computer with a single window open and I inadvertently close the window, the program closes down with no warning. This often happens if I have windows from other programs open and i have forgotten that only one MD window is open.

I suggest that you provide a notice before closing the program, saying " Do you really want to close Moneydance" with a yes/no button to respond with.

Thank you for your consideration.

    Hi Ron,

    Just as an FYI...

    Key-combo CTRL-W closes all child windows but will not close the parent window. In a Windows environment, Windows will 'chime' if you use CTRL-W on the parent window.

    Of course, you have to remember to use the key-combo instead of closing the window(s) in the regular manner. :)

    Hi Tony,


    If I remember correctly, the key-combo CTRL-W was developed as the result of requests similar to Ron's.

    I like the functionality of the key-combo but an 'Are you sure?' prompt is certainly within the norm.
