Cancel Any Operation

Question

We need the ability to cancel any in-progress operation. I'm currently sitting here waiting for Vectorworks to convert an object to an auto-hybrid, and it's taking forever. I didn't think it was a very complicated object, and I don't even need it to be auto-hybrid, but I can't cancel the operation. I hit escape and nothing happens. I'm pretty sure my only option is to wait (is it even doing anything? how long will this take?) or to force quit, which I really don't want to do since I haven't saved in a while. Thank god for auto-backups!

 

I've found myself in this situation many times where I realize some tool or operation is bogging down VW more than expected, and I'd like to be able to just cancel it and keep working.

Unfortunately this won't happen until more parts of Vw are converted to multi-core, here's a previous reply from JimW in a related thread:

Yes this would be useful as hell! Sounds like the request could be re-phrased then:

 

Wishlist - More geometry and mathematics calculations to be converted to multicore to allow cancellation of operations..?
