In creating Custom Menus I can’t seem to remove the “Exit” option from the FileMaker menus. Is there a way to do that? I need to be able to control how they exit the program.
You may want to investigate:* creating a script trigger for OnLastWindowClose (File > File Options > Script Triggers tab)* Kiosk mode (http://www.filemaker.com/help/html/fmpa_tools.24.20.html)
* Runtime (http://www.filemaker.com/help/html/fmpa_tools.24.12.html)depending on your needs.

You could also replace any entire pull-down menu with your own hand-built custom menu rather than trying to-assign one of the standard commands.
When I do this, I also put a "logout" button onscreen to give users an easy way to pick exiting the application/files, and I can program any script I want to it.
I try to reserve any closing routine to the OnLastWindowClose trigger, as Debi indicated.
You could replace any entire pull-down menu except the "Tools" menu in FileMaker Pro Advanced and the application menu (named the same as the running application) on Mac — which contains the Mac equivalent of the "Exit" option. The features Debi mentioned are much more robust approaches than custom menus.
