2018 Canceling Render

Recommended Posts


Can anyone actually cancel a rendering in progress?


I use the escape and/or the CNTRL-Period and neither seems to work?

Is there a new tool combo?

Is there anyway to stop it from Auto-Rendering on any action?

I do some things that should have no impact on the render - and it auto-starts rendering again - wasting another 6-8 min of my life !

This is an Always Do preference, we can reset the question so that you can change your selection.

Tools > Options > Vectorworks Preferences > Session > Reset Saved Settings (NOT the Reset button at the bottom left)

Check the second checkbox and click ok. You do not need to check the first box to reset tools/palettes etc.

Hmm - this did not seem to stop the auto-Re-render in design layers?

Was it supposed to?


(has alerted me to things I forgot about though :)

It should bring up the "Do you want to Re Render the Scene?" question after a few tries, you MIGHT need to restart Vectorworks before itll ask you again, but if that fails then a fill preference reset should bring it back.
