Can I stop blocks from immediately building?

Question:

Is it possible to pause computing blocks while working in nTop? If creating a workflow with several blocks, I may want to make changes to some workflow portion without rebuilding the entire Notebook.

Applies to:

  • nTop

Answer:

Pausing the Notebook is usually unnecessary as nTop always attempts to allocate one thread to the UI and limit software lock-ups. However, there are two ways to prevent blocks from building immediately.

  • Pause the entire Notebook by clicking Toggle Autobuild.
  • A simple way to pause a single block is to enter a non-numeric character into a numeric property. Delete the extra character to resume.
