Could there be a way of stopping a process that is taking too long, and exiting it without having to Force Quit?
I’m trying to work with Scott Baker (@NewThinking2) on his huge model. Every time I try Zoom Extents, SU goes into an apparently endless ‘Wait’ with spinning (Mac) ‘beach ball’.
The only way out seems to be Force Quit.
Could there be some key that long processes check - say every 30sec - to show whether it is just slow, or frozen, and offer the option just to cancel?
Out of a several hour session today with this model, with about 90% of its tags turned off so not visible, I’ve spent what feels like nearly half and is probably realistically a third, just waiting for SU. Which appears frozen, but eventually isn’t, but only most of the time. This time I’ve been waiting ten minutes for a Zoom Extents (not) to finish. About to Force Quit, since SU seems frozen.
I should have save more recently. Now I can’t.
