Avoid app palettes

I have numerous apps that require more than command-quit to quit. I made macros with command-quit hot keys (and a next step of app must be frontmost) to fix the problem. Suddenly, some of those (command-quit) macros are showing up on a palette. I don't know why that happened. How can I fix this?

Sounds like you inadvertently made a conflict palette by giving multiple macros the same hotkey. Two possible ways to resolve this issue are to either make app-separate macro groups to isolate the apps where each macro is active, thereby removing the conflict, or to make one big "Command-Quit Front App" macro that uses a Switch/Case action that handles different app quit procedures with different switches.
