Is there any way to stop Lyx from compiling?

(I am using Lyx with knitr, so the compilation can take very long. Sometimes, I often find errors while Lyx is still compiling. As I cannot cancel the compilation, I have to wait until the compiler gets to the error in order to start compilation again ...)

    There is a bug request asking for a button to stop the compilation: lyx.org/trac/ticket/10108 . In the meanwhile, you can try to stop the spawned processes (pdflatex, knitr...) and lyx will give up at some point (not ideal). – G.M. Apr 27 '16 at 18:55
  • @G.M. I would say add that as the answer. There is no other way to solve it currently. – scottkosty Apr 28 '16 at 2:51
