If Visual Studio is running a debug session on the simulator or on a device, pressing command-Q starts to close the application and a confirmation dialog is shown. The options are Cancel and Close Project. Clicking Cancel does not stop Visual Studio from closing but that would be helpful if, for example, the user thought that the simulator had the focus so the command-Q was intended to stop the simulator, not Visual Studio.
Clicking Cancel closes Visual Studio and leaves the debug session running. Clicking Close Project closes Visual Studio and also stops the debug session. If there are unsaved changes in the project, the dialog that is shown has Cancel, Quit, and Save and Quit buttons. Clicking that Cancel button does prevent Visual Studio from closing and that would be the preferred behavior even if there are no unsaved changes.
