Notes on Selected Commands


You should be aware of some limitations on the use of Ctrl + Shift + _ (stopping the currently executing command in the debugger).


The debugger can only stop in functions; therefore, it will never stop in top- level for or while loops.


The debugger can only stop an executing command before the evaluation of a statement.  If a single statement is executing for a long time, (for example, while running built-in functionality), then the debugger will not be invoked until that statement is finished.
