"Force quit" a background task
In all the years that we've had background tasks, I've almost never been able to cancel one successfully. Whenever a task hangs up for unknown reasons, and I hit cancel, it just hangs on the 'cancelling' step and the only way to stop it is to force-quit InDesign, which can equal lost work and damaged files.
I would like to see a more assertive way to force shut down of a background task that isn't cooperating.
FIX FIX FIX!!!!!!
STILL an adobe fail.
Mac OS X mojave, indesign cc 2019
This has been an issue for a very long time! Still in 2019 it's an issue. Work arounds offered online aren't working. There needs to be a on/off toggle for background tasks so that we can produce a pdf without the background task manager in the first place.
YES, fix it! That is f**** annoying!!!
Been a very big pain for as long as I can remember.
This is ridiculous. Fix this problem adobe. Even hard shutting down the computer does not force the program to close. Very unhappy.
