    Stopping, mid Script....

      Stopping, mid Script....

      Post

      Still a newbie.......more questions.

      I tried finding this info in some manuals, but can not seem to figure it out.  If someone cancels a running script, is there a way to put them back onto their original layout?  I have some layouts that arent needed to view, but needed for scripts.  If I interrupt a script, it leaves me on the wrong layout.  Exploring error capture, but it's not making sense.

      Any help would be greatly appreciated

      Thanks

      Steve

          There is no built in way to return to the original layout. Only a developer should be canceling a running script with esc (windows) or Command Period (Mac). As a developer you can return to the original layout by selecting the layout from the layouts menu.

          If you give the user the option to cancel the script by clicking a button, you should build additional steps that take them back to the original layout such as go to layout [<original layout>].

          You can return the user to the original layout and then pause your script or you can put your own button for cancelling the script with steps like these:

          Go to Layout [specify a layout, can't use original layout]
          Halt Script ---> this step halts the paused script.

          To pause a script so that only continue and not cancel is shown in the status area use Allow User Abort [off] to keep the cancel option out of the status area.
