is there a difference between closing forte using the x in the upper right hand corner, and the file/exit function? i've always used the x, and i find it closes faster and cleaner using file/exit.
Its never occurred to me to ask that question. Let me check.
The X butten sends a "WM_CLOSE" Message to the window it belongs to. The File Exit command sends an "ID_APP_EXIT" message which is handled by default in the Microsoft framework and simply turns around and posts a WM_CLOSE to the main window.
Therefore, it should be identical in behavior. If you can quantify or demonstrate a difference let me know.
using the x button after a full night (4 hours+) on stage, i get "forte has stopped working " msg a lot. then next time i open i get "forte did not close properly" with a timer to start in safe mode. same scenario using file/exit, it closes cleanly. not a huge problem, but file/exit solves it for me!
david white - me too, for as long as i can remember, through many versions.
I get the same error closing messages too. I have since using Forte from the begnning 3 years ago.
