Missing Item "Quit"

Recommended Posts

Trying to modify my VW 2016 Workspace. Can't close the dialog box because of a message saying "The following menu item is missing: "QUIT"

So, I can't save my changes. Any ideas why this is happening?

Thanks in advance.

Do you have the Quit item included under File?

Should be located under the All Menus section, there are a few commands you are not able to remove without getting an error. Did that workspace get migrated from one version to another or did it start in 2016?

Yes, it was imported from 2015 before I wanted to modify some short cuts. I didn't try to move or change the quit command.

I found "quit" under the all file menu as you suggested, so it seems to be there.

Please advise. Thanks. However, I sense a reload coming!

Well, quit was in the all menu folder, but not in the file tool set, so I moved it over and all seems to be well. Never had that problem before.....thanks.

@Rossford I know it has been a while since you resolved your problem but I am having the same issue. I am unsure what to do. Could you assist me. Thank you kindly

Wish I could help. I didn't even remember this, and since I upgrade each year, it hasn't been a problem since.

I had this too.

By the Warning I realized that the Menu>File> "Quit VW" entry was missing in my

Menu. So I just manually re-added "Quit" for my Custom Workspace's Menu

from the list and everything was fine again.


I assume that someone just renamed the internal Tool name of a new "Quit" Command

and deleted the old "Quit" - so the Old "Quit" disappeared from our custom Workspaces

and the new "Quit" wasn't inserted automatically.

But somehow VW realized that it was missing something mandatory ....
