OK, I did miss the obvious. I notice now that when TeXworks starts
there is actually a blank, untitled document open; so the close (= quit)
behavior makes a little more sense. As an enhancement for a future
version, though, I think it would be nice to have TeXworks behave more
like many apps in this regard. Both Word and OpenOffice Writer, for
instance, start with a blank document that you can close without leaving
Why would this be useful? I have a long document with several \include
commands. I wanted to close the subdocument I was editing and then open
the master document to typeset, so I hit Ctrl-W, thinking it would just
close the file and let me open another one. That's what got me thinking
