Cancel button

  • ** Cancel Button functionality update?

    Based on the thread I had over in support, I would like to suggest that when a user hits the cancel button that the archive/FTP/etc be cancelled immediately. Currently if I understand right it just cancels the current file and not the entire process.

    Possibly add another button for cancelling the entire process or swap the current one. I would figure hitting cancel would stop the whole thing. Would love to see this!

  • My understanding (for archives) was that it does cancel the entire process, but only when the current file operation is completed.

    Reacting sooner would require interrupting the compress/uncompress operation when “Cancel” is pressed - which would be nice if it can be done (especially when working with GB files).

  • Yeah thats what I was getting at…hitting cancel would stop the process immediately.

  • I’d still like to see this in the software, was curious if anyone else would like to see it too!

    can you clarify better? what exactly does not cancel right away and cancels only current file?

  • Yeah no problem. Lets say I am archiving a big folder with a bunch of files and I realize I need to redo it or for some reason cancel it. Right now if I hit cancel it seems to skip the current file and keep archiving the rest. I was suggesting if you hit cancel during a archive it would stop the entire process and close the window.

    what format is this with? It shouldnt happen that way… thanks!

  • spwolf you want to know something, I was being stupid. when you cancel a archive in progress, and it asks if you want to continue, I hit Yes thinking it meant it was cancelling the process, not continuing. I guess I was confused…maybe a reword might be good? Anyhow, its my mistake and you can delete this thread sorry for the waste of time lol…

    this is done on purpose, since we deemed it was better if you confuse continue than confusing cancel :-)
