Hello.

I am trying to stop a python script. In the previous version, there was a stop button, that seemed to to the job. But now I cant find a way to interrupt it. I tried sys.exit () , but doesn't seem to work either. What am I missing??

I think "ESC cancels the current operation", but it doesn't seem to be working for me (using the python window of ArcMap).

Sorry I couldn't help, I hope someone else can!

Hmmm, a few questions:
1) Are you trying to end a script mid process or are you trying to end the script from a specific point in the script?

2) Where are you running the script from? (ArcMap/IDLE)

How about stopping it with the task manager under processes?

Thank you both,

However, even in task manager, it cant be stopped without terminating CityEngine.

Thank you very much for your replies!

There seems to be a problem with the specific script i am trying to run.
I just wrote a simple loop and it stops normally using esc! .

Hi!

Control+C or control + X should work
