"EXIT" command is too easy to use


#1

I wanted to EXTEND a line. I know that I can do that by typing “ext”, then pressing ENTER. However, I was too quick and I pressed ENTER before the “t” key and the command at the top was EXIT, so Rhino closed.

Even though I didn’t lose any of my work, it was an inconvenience to have to wait for Rhino to close, then reopen it. I would like to see the EXIT command removed as a type-able command, or at least make it harder to type (e.g. EXIT RHINO).


#2

that happened to me before. thankfully, rhino will save the work prior to quitting so in that regard, it wasn’t too big of a deal.

it’s unfortunate that ‘exit’ is alphabetically ahead of a few commands that I often use… extend and the extrude commands. I think the command exists for scripting reasons but on mac, I’d expect the command to be ‘quit’ instead.


#3

It should probably just be removed from the auto-complete list. That way you really would have to type exactly “exit” to activate the command. In any case you should get the warning dialog if you have unsaved work, I don’t think there is any danger of Rhino closing without giving you the possibility to save.

Edit: perhaps on Mac, it will close without asking you if you want to save, due to Versions… Makes me glad I’m a Windows user…
