    MC 2019 Closing Project - Closes Program

    I am in MC 2019 and when I click the RED X in the top left of the project it closes the PROGRAM vs closing the project, in MC 2018 and older it was always that top left X closes just the project, but now you have to go manually to the FILE MENU then click CLOSE PROJECT or use a keyboard shortcut to do that,  is there anyway to set it back to the old style or is this a bug? Because if you are jumping between projects that is annoying you have to keep going to the FILE MENU.

    ⌘-W will close the project, like it always has.

    You can also close the project from the hamburger menu, like you've always been able to.

    Thanks. There is no Close Project in the Hamburger Menu in 2019.12.1. Here is a screenshot attached. Was it removed from this version? Could AVID add it back in?

    I believe you have to DESELECT all of the bins, then the Close Project should appear. That's at least what I see on MC 8.10.

    Yes but to deselect the bins you have to press COMMAND SHIFT A and then it'll lose focus on any bins, so that's still an extra step. I think they might need a fix in the next update so CLOSE PROJECT appears no matter what.

    Re: MC 2019 Closing Project - Closes Program

    Can this be registered as a bug that can be fixed? The option to close the project should always be in that Hamburger Menu because if not you have to actaully de-select the bins somehow before trying to go to the Hamburger menu so that you can choose Close Project, or else close project doesn't show up. Makes fast project switching hard cause you have to either use a keystroke to the close the project or go to File Close Project, vs having something more readily available. Like in the older AVID's you just clicked the X on the project window and it closed just the project not the entire program.

    I understand what you mean, but it should be a feature request rather than a bug escalation. What I mean is it appears that it's working like it's supposed to; the menu changes based on what is selected, which is how the program generally behaves.

    I suggest you post about this (with a link to this thread) in the Feature Request forum:
