Abort Macro?

Is it possible to abort a macro? Let's assume some guy made a macro with lots of pauses.... but also lots of type-os. When this guy pushes the button, his screen will scroll with errors... pause a lot.. scroll... pause.. etc. Is there any way to abort the macro without disconnecting the session?

I..... umm.. this guy I know would find that helpful.

Hi Casey,



If you are in an infinite loop, then I am not aware of a way.

If you are running a script and not in an infinite loop, then you can select Cancel from the Script menu.

If you have pressed a button, again, I am not aware of a way.

Can you provide more details about the situation?

The button function simply "Send String'.. it wasn't a script. It was just a poorly typed list of about 20 commands with lots of pauses (to give each command time to finish before issuing the next).

This guy got laughed at by some very cruel co-workers.

It's not a huge deal, it would have just been handy to be able to have a 'Oops.. Stop!' button in order to cut down on the ridicule.

Thanks for the clarification Casey.

I know how useful this could be. I have created a feature request in our SecureCRT enhancement database to add the ability to cancel the processing of a button. Should we add this ability, we will post to this thread.

If you would like to be notified directly, please complete and submit the form at the following location:
