Description Pierre Ossman cendio 2024-02-06 09:39:01 CET
macOS is a bit weird in that window shortcuts, like closing the application using Cmd+Q, are handled by the application rather than caught on a system level.

That has the effect that they no longer work once the client is connected. This is unlike Linux and Windows where the system will always handle things like Alt+F4.

Some users are surprised by this as they expect these shortcuts to work everywhere.
