How to stop gdl script execution?



Im working on a rather large project and some things require some custom simple GDL objects to save some time. Well now and then I end up writing an infinite loop. Is there a way to stop a script at this point? Does it stop on its own after a while? I'm a little worried ending up with a broken file.

Thanks in advance!


Does ctrl / cmd period work for you?

Yeah, happens to the best from time to time 😉

In theory Cmd + "." should work, as Ling said, but it never actually anything for me either.

So I fear the only solution is the task manager.... Hopefully you have saved your object ealier! It will then be catched in the auto save file.

All in all another reason why I prefer to not program in Archicad directly.
