    To terminate the process, open the activity monitor, mark the selected process and click on Force a process to quit. However this questions seems better suited for apple.stackexchange. Commented Mar 20, 2018 at 20:01

    While you wait for an answer to this question, can you go back to your previous ones and look if the answers solve your problems and accept them, if they do? Commented Mar 20, 2018 at 20:04
  • Or pkill pdftex on the command line, assuming Macs have pkill (which I would guess they do, but Apple does strange things).

  • I think your question is rather: how can I terminate the pdftex process in Texmaker, correct? Commented Mar 21, 2018 at 18:10
  • Thanks @samcarter! I am terminating the process in the activity monitor now. @ShreevatsaR: Yes, it would be easier to end it in Texmaker.
