A few years ago, when encountering errors with my code, TeXstudio stopped and produced a log file.
However, for a while, I have been suffering from stucking with endless compilation in case of errors, which forces me to stop compilation and use arara instead in order to recognize where the problem is.
It shows me that in the messages panel below that the document is being compiled (i.e. the message
Process started... shows up), while I feel that it does nothing heavy by checking the CPU activity.
So, what are the possible reasons that make TeXstudio do so, knowing that the version of TeXstudio is 2.12.8 and that of TeX Live is 2018 (up-to-date) running on Windows 10 v1803?
