Given that I work on two computers, one at home and one in my office, and given that I sometimes walk away from one or the other machine intending (then forgetting) to come back, I found this a little irritating.
Then I remembered a little app called Quitter, made by Marco Arment, the guy behind Overcast and Instapaper. All Quitter does is automatically quit a given application after a prescribed period of inactivity. It takes a couple of seconds to set up, and it works like a charm. I set Quitter to close Scrivener after half an hour of non-use, and now the two-machines thing is a non-issue.
You can download Quitter at https://marco.org/apps and it's free. Highly recommended.
P.S. Keith, just wanted to say congrats on the iOS app! It's so good, I'm thinking about selling my Macbook and going with iPad Pro as my main computer! Thanks so much for the hard work! Happy to be home.
