Command Q/W quitting game on Mac solved

Post by melons »

For anyone who is on the Mac and accidentally pressed Command + Q or W then you'll know it just quits the game out right, I've now worked out the solution to stop this. You need to replace the 'Close' (Command+W) shortcut and reassign the Command + Q shortcut

Go to
Settings > Keyboard > Shortcuts > App Shortcuts

Sorting the Command+W (Close)
Click the + and select OpenRa add Menu Title 'Close" then for keyboard shortcut choose the one you want ie Command+Shift+W

If you test it you should find Command+W no longer closes the window and you now have to include the shift key to close the window.

Command + Q
For this I reassign the key, click the + and for Menu Title use 'Zoom' and keyboard shortcut use Command+Q

This should now disable the Command+Q for quitting the game.

Hope this helps someone.
