Inadvertently closing docker

(Kasper Jacobsen) #1

Expected behavior

Docker continues running after trying to close the settings window with cmd+q

Actual behavior

Docker exits.


  • Docker for Mac: Version 1.11.1-beta10 (build: 6662) b4d942b304b7d7d0ee48d96e3b424ccfbcceca89
  • OS X: 10.11.4 (15E65)

Steps to reproduce the behavior

  1. Click the whale in the menubar and open settings
  2. Press cmd+q

Thanks for your feedback.

The CMD+Q shortcut is supposed to quit the current app
CMD+W is the shortcut you want to use to close the current window. (like the Settings window you are mentioning)

This works as expected in Docker for Mac.

However, we may consider adding a “Are you sure you want to quit Docker for Mac” popup to avoid the experience you are describing.

I would vote for that!
