Simple one: how do you abort a macro from being executed once it's set into motion?

I have a few complicated macros that I've programmed that, once sent into motion, take a while to finish. It's awesome. But once in a while I need to abort it. I did search in earnest to find out how to do this (and tried the obvious....pressing esc, command X, etc). Is there a way?

The wiki covers all the major options.

Happy hunting.

Wiki states ("You can cancel all running macros by holding all the modifiers (Control, Option, Shift and optionally Command and clicking on the Keyboard Maestro Status Menu Icon."). Not only does this not seem to work, but I can't actually click on the Keyboard Maestro Status Menu Icon because my mouse is flying all over the place....because of the macro I instantiated.

Any help (beyond "go north") would sincerely be much appreciated.


Try this:

There are plenty of other examples if you search!
