    Quit doesn't prompt "Are you sure?" Just quits.

    Since MC5 on PC, CTL-Q just quits without a prompt.

    Am I wrong or does this suck?

    I'd prefer the "Are you sure?" prompt.  

    Often I want to close a bin and hit Q instead of W...I mean, yes I do blow it now and again and it's nice to have a little safety catch there.

    Hope this feature returns.

    New version = 1 new feature minus 1 old feature.

    I just tried CRTL-Q om my system and it doesn't quit all. The only way I can quit MC is through the normal route. Could it perhaps be altered keyboard settings or sw settings related to CRTL and ALT key behaviour? Scanning my own settings now.

    Sorry, I spoke too soon. MC does quit when you hit CTRL-Q and the timeline is selected. Yes that is scary...

    I think that this behaviour was there with MC4 too.  A little while back there was quite a thread on it.

    This has been the case for many years.

    I don't like it either. I accidently hit CTRL-Q once or twice a week. Of course, it mostly happens when I have 160 bins open with huge and complex sequences, which takes forever to save and reopen.
