True, but still this is a common experience and WRI could easily add a More Information note on the Abort page (where new users might logically look): "Abortion of an evaluation may be effectuated from the Evaluation Menu. This aborts Kernel evaluation but does not stop any pending Front End processing." David Park djmpark at comcast.net http://home.comcast.net/~djmpark/ From: Bill Rowe [mailto:readnews at sbcglobal.net] There are improvements that can be made to the documentation. But, it is clearly impractical for the documentation for each individual command to be stand alone documentation that covers all aspect of that command without needing to look at any other documentation for Mathematica. A direct consequence of this is users unfamiliar with Mathematica will not have a complete understanding of a command by reading just the documentation page for that command.
