PLEASE FIX THE CANCEL BUTTON IN EXPORT SWF MOVIE

Jul 12, 2012 3:36 AM

When you hit Ctrl+Enter to test a movie or you publish it, and it is a big file that takes ages to export, YOU NEED THE CANCEL BUTTON TO RESPOND immediately.

 

Most of the times, it either:

- does not respond at all, or

- responds only after it completes a huge chunk of export, usually almost the entire operation. This may take SEVERAL MINUTES.

 

This has been so for literally YEARS, and it's unbelievable that you haven't fixed something so basic and critical.

 

A Cancel button must by definition be the most responsive thing in a program, otherwise it is useless.

There's no way to abort the export if the Cancel button doesn't work, except kill Flash.

This may prevent you from cancelling a long export and save your work, in case you hit Ctrl+Enter and you have forgot to save before.

 

For god's sake, fix it.

    These are user to user forums.  If you have a problem with the program design that you would like to have Adobe consider addressing you need to file a report using the link below...

    and while I agree with your frustration, there are probably other things going on that you are not considering that need to be properly managed for cancellation to occur without throwing your machine into a tailspin.

    I won't agree with your conclusion, but that's just one opinion versus another.  If it takes that long to do something, there is every possibility it takes just as long or longer to properly undo it.  The ones who might know why are probably at the other end of that link I provided.  Maybe you should submit there and ask if they can share an explanation.

    It's probably important to note that Flash Pro isn't listed in the bug report options?

    Hi,

     

    You could report Flash Professional bugs by selecting Flash Authoring option.
