In the View menu on the Tool Bar "Preview Mode" is shown as Control + W, but nothing happens and my MacBook makes that 'boop' noise that it does when no action can be completed at this time. Am I pushing the wrong keys, or is this a bug?

Are you sure it's showing Control, and not Cmd?

Yes, that's Ctrl. Sorry; I thought the default on Mac was Cmd for that one.

Command-W is the nearly universal shortcut for closing a window (thus, closing a document, as in Publisher).

Control-W should work, but I occasionally get Publisher in a state where I get the alert sound with any keyboard input I try, including command-Q (quit). I wish I could figure out how to get it in that state so I could report it. So far all I can do is to quit from the menu, and when I restart Publisher, all is right again.

That's similar to Windows, where Ctrl+W is the shortcut for closing a document or window (but not the application window). So, on Windows, the Preview Mode shortcut is Ctrl+Shift+W.

It's interesting that the Affinity default on Mac isn't simply Cmd+Shift+W, to match the Windows Affinity default.

that's pretty wild, actually. never heard of cmd+q not working. i guess there's still a few bugs

@GabrielM so i just tried and control + w works now. i got a new laptop since i made this post, so maybe it had something to do with that machine. to be clear, i did not get a new laptop to fix this issue LOL i was upgrading anyway. thanks for the tip though!! much appreciated.
