Stopping a Process

An example of an extreme case is if you sent 10,000 drawings for vectorization and only one machine is available to handle the Job (which means it will take hours to complete).

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO STOP THESE PROCESSES YOURSELF. If you must stop a process, see your System Administrator.

After you send a scene's drawing for vectorization or rendering, you can remove it from the queue easily. If the process is pending in your vectorize or render queue (check the State column in the queue list), you can simply remove it by selecting the Job and clicking the Delete button in the Vectorize/Render Queue window.

But once the vectorizing or rendering process actually begins, it gets a bit more complicated to stop the process.

If you really must stop a rendering or vectorizing Job, you must remove the Job from the Vectorizing or Rendering queues and then find the actual process in your Windows Task Manager, Linux Shell or Mac OS X Activity Monitor and kill each task manually.
