Interrupting a Command

You can interrupt a command by pressing Ctrl-G, the default abort key. For example, you can use Ctrl-G to stop an incremental search on a very long file if you don't feel like waiting. You can set the abort key with the set-abort-key command. If you interrupt Epsilon while reading a file from disk or writing a file to disk, it will ask you whether you want to abort or continue. Typing the abort key also cancels any currently executing keyboard macros. Aborting normally only works when a command checks for it.

Standard bindings:

  Ctrl-G  abort
   set-abort-key
