When a process is running, as a user tool as an example, there is an entry in the Tools menu, to stop the process. This could be relevant to also have this entry appearing in the output pane's contextual menu.

By the way, a list of the processes currently running, would be useful too, but that's less obvious to do, I guess (the proposal of adding an already existing menu entry additionally in an other menu, is more straightforward).

    It makes sense to add the context menu entry (or perhaps in the output pane toolbar), but I don't understand the list of processes suggestion. What's an example scenario, what would those processes be?

    but I don't understand the list of processes
    suggestion. What's an example scenario, what
    would those processes be?

    An example scenario is when one did not noticed a previous user tool have not terminated (it hangs, is long or anything else) and start another tool or the same tool, while the other is not finished.

    I did not knew there is a tool bar in the output pane. Is this something plug‑ins can have access to?
