Button to abort ongoing operation
This is a wish list item.
There are a number of different circumstances in which a lot of RAM or processor time is needed, when working with, eg - complex images with a lot of gradients, or a large number of nodes. At the moment, I'm playing around with Tiled Clones, where I have over 2000 tiny clones. So when I do certain things to all of them at once, like break their link to each other, it can take 3 or 4 minutes.
And I understand that it's just a limitation that Inkscape has for now, and I'm fine with it. But I'm wondering if it might be possible to create some sort of "Abort the Process" button. I expect I will always be a student of Inkscape, but especially when I'm trying something new, it can be frustrating to click something, and realize a second later that it wasn't what I meant to do, but have to wait 3 or 4 minutes for it to finish....and then another 3 or 4 minutes to Undo it!
I know nothing about coding, so don't really have a clue whether it's even a viable option. But if so, I'd like to request something like an "Abort the Process" feature.
Thanks for listening,
