Microstation v8i: Is there any way to disable the annoying "This will exit microstation" nag screen that pops up if I exit by clicking the X in the top right hand corner? My mental response is usually along the lines of "Gosh, will it? I never knew that."
I Hope This Helps Someone Reading This! (Intergraph>PseudoStation>MicroStation user since 1980's)
That's the message I'm getting, but I'm using v8i. MS_EXIT is undefined. I also had it on v8, on two different sysytems.
(edit - sorry, that's the respone to Andrew Bell's post)
Thanks for the suggestion, which led me to find the source of the problem, if not the solution:
I tried using a new user in the workspace, and found that I didn't get the exit alert. I then went through my personal ucf file, commenting out each line at a time until I found the variable that caused the problem. The line in question is MS_USECOMMANDWINDOW = 1 - if that is removed I don't get the exit alert. Unfortunately it also means I don't get the command window, and I use that a lot. I suspect that the command window and exit alert are in some way inextricably linked, so it's something I'll have to live with.
Thanks to all for you help. Debug file attached in case anyone can come up with other suggestions.

Yes, it seems to be correct. I tried it and my MicroStation behaves the same way.

May I ask why? Command windows is a concept which was left I guess 20 years ago. Does it provide some feature, which is accessible using only this dialog?
Anyway, tt's the side cut as it cannot be used anymore in the next version of MicroStation.

It's been working OK since MicroStation V8 was introduced in 2001 8-)
If you've been using the Command Window, you may be unaware of the MicroStation Message Center. The Message Center provides more feedback than the message, status, command and prompt fields...
