Hi there

 

I am DESPERATELY trying to find the keyboard shortcut to cancel a print job while Indesign is still doing the flattening of a document. I'm on Mac OS Mojave.

 

I used to know the keyboard shortcut to cancel, but it's not often that I need to, and as such, have forgotten it. I have been searching every term I can think of both on Google and in these forums, but for some reason it's vanished from the minds of every Indesign user for Mac, forever.

 

Please help. I have a document that is quite intensive and it basically blocks me from doing anything else for the 15 min it takes to flatten the document to print. See attached screenshot to see what I'm trying to cancel:

I found my answer in a completely different category (dialogue boxes).

 

The solution is to press "cmd+period [.]". It closes the dialogue box.
