Whenever I try to switch to Fullscreen mode (via menu or via Hotkey), program quits with error message:
"This functionality is not supported in full screen mode!
File: RNOPFD.hw (current line; 231 - in Function isMenuItemSelected)"

Tried in a WIN10 System.

char sequence quitting IDE (HW8)

Try to type the following in Hollywood 8 IDE / Win10 :

It doesn't matter, in which order you type the sequence. As soon, as it is complete, the described behaviour happens.

Re: How to properly release something out to the wild

Good approach ! Indeed the quality of deployments could be better. And regarding Amiga Software not only Hollywood programs, but other SW , too.
