Confirm close dialogue?

Hi I’m quite new to blender and one thing i find quite annoying is the absence of a ‘Are you sure you wish to close?’ button when I attempt to exit blender. Losing work due to the lack of this is already becoming a pain, and can’t imagine what it would be like when I start making more complex projects :stuck_out_tongue:
Is there some sort of option to enable this that i have overlooked? Or is there some sort of script/addon/mod or something that I could use to implement this?

Thanks in advance.

P.S. If this has already been answered I appologise but, couldn’t find it anywhere on the forums :stuck_out_tongue:


You might want to check out BlenderStorm, it’s where people put all their ideas for Blender features, and others can vote on them.

And more specifically, check out what’s at number 1:
It’s quite a touchy subject for some people sadly.

If you use CTRL-Q to quit instead of clicking the button, it will ask you to confirm…
If you still accidently click the button, you can try your luck with the:
File->Recover Last Session
menu option.

also go to on windows c: mp\ and click quit.blend and your back where you were!


Basically the one little click isn’t much…
But you can easily close blender by closing the command line.

Hey guys, thanks for the replies. Seeing the confirm exit at the top of the list on blenderstorm isn’t much of a surprise really, hopefully we’ll see at least the option on the next version. Also thank you VERY much alienkid10 for the thing about C: mp\ folder, didn’t realise everything was stored in there before, can’t see me losing anything in the near future now :).

Thanks again.
