If it is added, I would like the option to turn it on/off in the application options. I dont really think that it is needed and I only think it would slow Inventor down.
On rare occasions Inventor will hang, then I just use ctrl-alt-del and end the task. Not really sure if the esc key would help in that situation.
Along with the request of In-Stream modifiers for dimensions, which I've been begging for since Rev 5.3.
Here is a list of very familiar names that all agreed in 2006 that a Cancel Command function is needed:
That was 6 years ago that this was requested.
mcgyver, you agreed 6 years ago that a Cancel Command feature would be useful:
ampster, Even if you don't agree, there are plenty that do, like:
all 6 years ago, in 2006: http://preview.tinyurl.com/6owxtfg
edit, come to think of it, does any solid modeling application provide an cancel/escape option?
Not that I'm aware of, probably because in order to have such a feature would require access to hardware level interupts. Most OS's block that level of access making it very difficult for any programmer to actually use a hardware level interupt. If they didn't, then there would be a lot more, very, very, deadly virus's out there.
What are in stream modifiers again? I know this has been a big deal for you for many years, but I'm not exactly sure what you are referring to?
Looks like the Inventor users are not alone.
Solidworks users rank the Cancel Command in amongst their top ten wishes. Maybe when Autodesk's primary competitor leads the way, that is when they will follow?
Back in 2006, the Cancel Command was added to the AUGI wishlist, to no avail.
The following notable contributors to the Inventor community all agreed 6 years ago that this feature was needed:
I would love it for iLogic rules. I have a lot of assemblies heavy with code and I couldn't tell you how many times I click run rule or regenrate rule instead of edit rule. Then I have to wait 5 minutes for the code to execute. Or worse, I do it on a rule that eventually closes the file. Then I get to wait 5 minutes for it to execute then another minute to reopen the thing. Very frustrating.
