"Command W" quits application.
"Command W" Keyboard short cut now quits the application rather than just closing the current window.
Apologies for the inconvenience caused to you due to this issue.
Unfortunately we are not able to reproduce this issue. Could you kindly provide the following information to help us nail this down.
1)Kindly provide the screenshot of the shortcuts in Illustrator. These can be checked by going to
Edit→Keyboard Shortcuts. In the dropdown, select “Menu Commands” and expand the Illustrator Command.
2) Kindly also provide the screenshot for OS App Shortcuts. This can be found in System Preferences on Mac. In System Preferences go to Keyboard and App Shortcuts in the menu.
Kindly share the above with us in a Zip file at email@example.com

Same here. I'm running Ai 2020 on a Mac with OS 10.14.6

Yup, me too. Glad to see that I'm not the only one. Was thinking that I must be mistakenly hitting Command-Q.

Adobe ******* up things with each update because they don't care. If you're forcing updates on people then please test your ****.
This still hasn't been addressed, even with the recent updates to the program. Most frustrating to have to restart several times during the day, especially when dealing with several rush jobs.
So glad to see it's not just me!! Like Wray I'm restarting Illustrator multiple times a day. Very unhappy

Ditto, very annoying, It is absolutely killing my workflow. Must restart Illustrator 15-20 times a day.

I thought I was crazy. I've been noticing this as well and I hate it with a passion. It's been slowing my workflow terribly.
