iiii3970224dfuck Ctrl-Q with all my heart.
it's too easy to press by accident and applications generally treat it as "close without asking"
Alt-Esc or Shift-Esc would be a much saner choice
Flygger2021224dThat makes me think about university, when a teacher in a programming course had written his own application to develop in (a very specific text editor, nothing fancy, but we had to use it); it had a lot of standard shortcuts, they were just assigneded quite inanely, i.e. `Ctrl+A` was force quit...
Shortcuts should never use an established shortcut for another operation and the more destructive the operation is, the harder it should be to press it by accident...
`Ctrl+Q` is already the closing command in many applications (https://defkey.com/what-means/...), but even more so is `Ctrl+W` (technically "Close window")...
And I would much prefer a standardisation of "Redo" as `Ctrl+Y` and `Ctrl+Shift+Z` divide the "market" evenly, with a few using `Ctrl+R` and even `Ctrl+Q`...
sudo-woodo675224dIf alt+f4 is too hard to reach you should probably get bigger hands.
melezorus342276224dThere is a reason they invented a Quit Control for VSCode
CodeTalker612181dMy DE offered this feature of using Ctrl+Q by default
And I immediately disabled it when I found out
Because trust me, it's awfully dangerous, and even more when you have an AZERTY keyboard like me and S and Q stand next to each other…
