hello @all,

sorry if stupid question, i'm too short in time for own investigation actually ...

is there any option to stop a action in calc once you come to the conclusion you dont want it to continue ...

consider the following, a complicated formula and a user pasted it into a whole column, the program would calculate
forever / a long time / nobody knows but the program is unresponsive,

actually a user has only? two options: wait - an unknown time! | or kill the task - with possible data loss ...

in other situations - e.g. in a command window - one can press ctrl-c and hopefully interrupt the task avoiding further wait or damage ...

if not yet present in calc i'd suggest as an enhancement
