Cannot quit / Unable to shut Station on Mac / Cmd + Q does not work

:writing_hand: Brief description of the issue

When I shut down my Mac (High Sierra, latest updates) - on all of my Macs - Station not only doesn’t quit, it actually prevents my Mac from shutting down. Even when simply trying to quit Station, under any circumstance, the only way to close it is to force quit.

I’m having this same issue as well but only when Gmail or Inbox tabs tabs are active: maybe the current opened page is preventing closing due to some text being typed?

As much as I like Station, I’m concerned to see such basic functionality not working as expected. Hopefully this will be addressed very soon.

An alternative to force quitting is to:

  1. Press ⌘-Tab to activate the application switcher
  2. Keep the ⌘ key held down as you Tab over to Station.
  3. Keep the ⌘ key held down as you press the Q key to quit.

Generally speaking, this is a handy way to quit apps on the Mac. If you keep the ⌘ key held down you can continue to press Tab (to switch) and Q (to quit) other apps.

Similarly pressing the H key with ⌘ held down hides whichever app is selected.

I have the very same issue here. Using Cmd+Q, doesn’t work at all, force quit is needed every time. Station also prevents Mac from shutting down.

On the Mac, Command-Q, or selecting “Quit” from the File menu does not quit station. If I control-click the the application icon in the dock, I can quit the program.

The only way I can quit Station (version 1.25.1) is via the Force Quite Applications dialog (MacOS Mojave)
