# How to abort compilation in TeXstudio?

I'm using TeXstudio to compile my LaTeX code. However, for some reason in my code, the compilation will be immersed in a endless loop. Hence, when I fix the problems in my code (or may be not) and need to recompile it, I have to kill the engine first. What's more annoying, if the problem that causes the never-ending loop remains, I have to kill the process in terminal window again and again and again.

Is there any way to abort compilation in TeXstudio?

• What kind of OS are you using? Linux or MacOS? – Ch'en Meng Dec 6 '13 at 7:56
• @Ch'enMeng Thank you for your comment. I'm using Linux. Why? – Tachibana Kanade Dec 6 '13 at 7:59
• Since I was a TeXstudio user under Linux and Windows, I know how to abort the compilation in TeXstudio---by pressing Esc, however, I'm not sure if this will work under MacOS. Try it. :) – Ch'en Meng Dec 6 '13 at 8:02
• Since 2.7 release there is an icon on menu with this feature (red color during compilation). – jotagah Apr 6 '14 at 11:53
