To Quit or not to Quit

Postby shane2peru » Sat Mar 08, 2014 9:45 pm

Working on a Mac platform, I have noticed an odd behavior. There are a few options to quit out of the program, and I don't really understand the difference. Clicking on "Bible Analyzer" in the menu bar, I have two options at the bottom to quit. "Quit Bible Analyzer" and "Quit and Keep Windows". Clicking either results in a pop up window, "Verses from References" that is blank. I can click on the red x, and it goes away, and the program doesn't exit. Or I can click on the 'hide' button at the bottom, and program doesn't exit out either. It doesn't matter what option on the Bible Analyzer menu I choose, results is the same. However, if I click on File (in the menu bar) -> Quit, it asks me if I want to save my work in s-pad, and exits out correctly.

Here is the odd part. If I open BA, and don't do anything (don't study) and test this, it closes out normally when I run through the first menu options listed above. However if one verses is exported to the s-pad, it goes through the problem I explained. I often export to the s-pad, because it copies it to my clipboard, and I paste it in my word processor.

This is just a minor issue that I have run into, and wanted to let you know about it. It seems a redundancy in the menus too. Perhaps there is a reason though.

Thanks for the good explanation.

I can't reproduce this on 10.6. Also, there is no such menu item as "Quit and Keep Windows" on it. BA closes normally from the Bible Analyzer menu or the File/Quit menu. This must be a 10.9 thing.

I hesitate to install 10.9 because I want Bible Analyzer to work on as many versions back as possible. One would think Apple (or Microsoft) would support software that ran on their OSs two or three versions back, but that is not always the case.

Ok, I'm on 10.9 so that could be. I was gong to try and get a screenshot, but because it is a menu thing, it isn't that easy. It isn't a big deal, just kind of a minor issue that I had noticed. That is strange that the menu's are actually different from one Mac OS version to another. And yes, Mac, and especially Windows, are not very friendly towards backward compatibility. They have a vested interest in getting people to upgrade. :) If I can be of further informational help, or testing help on this issue, please let me know. Perhaps I can test it on 10.9, and you can keep your setup the way it is.
