Pause a Script

Link to Pause a Script copied to clipboard

Pause a script whenever you want to pause a playing script before it has finished playing, and still be able to continue playing it at a later time.

At any time after clicking the Play button and before the last event has been performed, the Resume button becomes a Pause button that, when clicked, will stop the script from running at that point in time, after which it will change the Pause button back to a Resume button again.

While a script is currently playing, click Pause on the Scripting toolbar.

Clicking the Pause button on the Scripts panel

The script stops playing, and the Pause button changes to display a Resume button.

For instructions about how to resume a paused script, see Resume script playback.
