Modifying Entries in the Vectorize Queue

When you have a list of entries in your queue, you can modify them in one of the following ways:

Change their state in the queue: update a drawing's status in the queue from Processing (which means it is being vectorized) to Pending (which means the drawing will be vectorized).

After you set a Job as Pending, the Job remains in the queue until a machine becomes available and takes the job or you delete it from the queue.

Click the Change State to Pending button to change the status of the selected entries in the queue from Processing to Pending. After a Job becomes Pending, the next available machine will process the entry.

If you want to remove the entry from the queue, you can select the Pending entry and click Delete. If the entry is Processing, you can delete the entry from the queue but the processing will not stop until the machine completes it (see note below).

Change the drawing's processing priority: change the order in which the system vectorizes the drawings by assigning a priority to each drawing.
Click the Change Priority button to change the selected drawings' processing priority in the queue.
When the New Priority dialog box appears, drag the scroll bar to increase or decrease the drawing's vectorize priority.
Remove drawings from the vectorize queue: cancel the vectorize command on selected drawings. When you remove a drawing from the queue, it only cancels the vectorize request.
Click the Delete button to delete the selected drawings from the queue.

You can only modify an entry in the Vectorize queue while it is pending (check the State column in the queue list); you cannot modify a Job that is being vectorized.

If you must change something about a scene's drawings, you must wait until the vectorizing is complete, then make your changes and send the drawing to the vectorize queue.

 

If you must absolutely stop the vectorizing process, you can kill the vectorize process in Windows, Linux or
Mac OS X.
