Stop/cancel unnecessary process

Recommended Posts

Im currently having a problem with a site model. Every time I touch it, VW locks up while it "creating visual site model" 

Takes over 5 minutes...AHHHH

Kills my work flow. There is obviously a problem with my site model, it has many modifiers, and over 14,000 m2 so may be a bit much for my off the shelf MacBook pro.


Please add to the wish list a cancel or end current process program.

Many years ago when using DataCad this was something I used often. The ESC key would escape you from the current tool, or END would stop any unnecessary rendering, or major process that was demanding a lot of the CPU. Sometimes you really just want to stop it with one click.


Apologies for ranting, Just thought I'd put it out there and see if this is possible. (While waiting again for  'creating Visual Site Model')

It seems that usually the answer is to just go and upgrade you computer, again...

Kind Regards. Chappy

I agree regarding stopping rendering, previous versions I could stop a render with the esc key, however 2020 seems to only work about 10% of the time. You get stuck having to wait for a process to end 😞
