Composition Loader doesn't respond to cmd-W

Steps causing the bug to occur

  1. create composition
  2. run
  3. cmd-W in the editor window (cmd-W is typically “close window” on OS X)
  4. window sticks around :(

How did the result differ from what you expected?

For the various supported platforms, supporting the more common keyboard shortcuts “universally” makes things feel more natural.

There’s also no cmd-, (Preferences - though this doesn’t always exist for every app), and cmd-~ is “weird” since the loader is a separate process (I’m actually not sure how feasible it is to hijack cmd-~ to switch between related processes, maybe that’s impossible/impractical)

Have you found a workaround?

cmd-Q works (though the window doesn’t have the red stoplight enabled either)

Other notes

  • Vuo version: 0.8.0

ACK – step 3 should be “cmd-W in the loader window”, not the editor window. oops :(

Windows created by Vuo compositions are intentionally unclosable during an app’s lifetime, since there isn’t yet a way to programmatically reopen them.

I split this into 2 feature requests:

Neither Vuo Editor nor VuoCompositionLoader currently have a preferences dialog, but when they do, we’ll be sure to add ⌘, as a shortcut.
