Pausing a Script

Pausing a script is done whenever you want to stop a currently-playing script before it has finished playing, and still be able to continue playing it at a later time.


At any time after clicking the Play button and before the last event has been performed, the Resume button becomes a Pause button that, when clicked, will stop the script from running at that point in time, after which it will change the Pause button back to a Resume button again.

To pause a script:

  • While a script is currently playing, click the Pause button in the Scripting toolbar.
  • Clicking the Pause button on the Scripts panel

    The script stops playing, and the Pause button changes to display a Resume button.

    For instructions about how to resume a paused script, see Resuming a Script.
