Hi Mark,

Right now I have some more crucial issues to address, as I mentioned in an earlier email to the list. Once I have those resolved, I "may" get back to this. Maybe not. (smile)

Regardless, thank you for your time.

After you choose the Quit menu item, it is the operating system that stops the application, not Revolution itself. However, before the operating system stops the application, it sends a message, which in turn triggers the shutdownRequest message.

>> Mark, I can't get this to work properly. Frankly, I think something like this should be automatically resolved as part of the Auto script on the Menu Builder. As is, too complicated; plus it doesn't work even implementing your suggestions. I may have made a mistake, but I don't think so. I've just decided to always save with that caveat to users. Not a friendly solution, but my users will be very bright professionals. Not to say that we haven't all screwed up at one time or another. (smile)
