Background Tasks stuck on "Cancelling"
I was exporting multiple PDFs that were not exporting properly. When I figured out they were stuck, I manually cancelled the export in "Background Tasks". Both tasks have been "Cancelling" for two days. I cannot close the files nor can I close InDesign.
I have this issue too.
This PIA has been a problem with InDesign for 10+ years. Force quit and restart is a brilliant solve from Adobe.

Same. Adobe's had this problem for years and done nothing. Apparently exporting for print isn't a particularly important task for InDesign!

I have the same problem… pdf export lasting forever, and when I cancel it remains on "cancelling the task" and I'm stuck: cannot launch another pdf export or close de document or quit indesign
