Normally that is true. You are correct that typically if I pause a sequence, then I will have options to abort, etc. However, that is true if the sequence is running and I manually pause the sequence by clicking on the Pause button.
However, that is not how the sequence was paused in my case. It was paused by a condition set in an event. The button available to click was “Resume”. When I clicked that, SGP responded with “There are no events remaining. Do you want to restart the sequence from the beginning? Yes or No?”
In other words, there was no “Pause” available. The only option was to restart the sequence at the beginning which I did not want to do because I was trying to shut down for the night. So, I selected “No”. That was a dead end because it left no option to abort. SGP simply sat there “paused”. As a result I performed each of the End of Sequence actions manually and exited SGP.
If you are saying I could have clicked “Yes (restart the sequence from the beginning)” and then clicked “Pause” and then said abort the sequence, it might have worked that way. I did not try it. Does this mean there is no way to directly trigger the End of Sequence?
That seems to me like an obviously desirable function to have. Other functions in SGP, e.g. Autofocus, have a Cancel (or abort if you will) option. However, I could find no comparable function to trigger the End of Sequence. Perhaps it doesn’t exist. If it does not exist, I would ask the developers to add it.
