Provide way to terminate accidental "[action] all"?

Mon Aug 17, 2015 5:30 am

For oXygen 17, Windows 7.

If one accidentally chooses Open All files or Apply All scenarios, is there a way to terminate or interrupt that operation? (Besides completely closing oXygen 17, I mean.)

If there is not currently a way to stop an in-progress [action] All operation, please consider implementing one(?) I've tried ESCAPE and CTRL+C after accidentally choosing Open All Files on a directory full(!) of files (I actually meant to click Show in Explorer) but was unable to halt that process (short of just closing oXygen).

I may be the only oXygen XML user who experienced this problem, but thought I'd put it out there for consideration.

Cheers & thanks,

If the application opens large files, there should be a progress dialog box that allows you to cancel the operation. Unfortunately, there is no overall progress, including even small files or files opened in system applications.

Regarding the scenarios, there should be a Stop button somewhere, depending from where you used the Apply All action.

Anyway, I've registered your request on our issue tracking system and we'll have this in sight as an improvement for a future version.
