#197 Stop viewers on LaTEX-Error

When pdflatex exits with an error, it may leave an
unfinished, corrupted PDF. Acrobat, which is invoked
automatically by my output-profile, always badly
crashes when trying to repair those corrupted PDFs.
Sadly, I couldn't stop pdflatex from leaving those
damaged files nor stop Acrobat from trying to repair. :(

Perhaps it might be an idea then to add another option
to the output profiles. Similar to "Stop compiling on
LaTEX error", it could be "Prevent viewing on LaTEX error"?

    As far as I know, this is already possible.

    Go to:

    Build :: Define Output Profiles (Alt + F7)

    Choose desired profile and on the right side you have an
    option you can enable or disable: "Stop compilation, If
    LaTeX erros occures."

    I believe this is what you want.

    @rockstar: Sadly, this is not enough. The option you
    mentioned prevents the postprocessing from happening, but
    not invoking the viewer. So, I was suggesting a similar
    option which could be like "Stop viewing, if..." (or extend
    the "Stop compilation" option, so it won't startup the viewer)

    @ninjadrm

    Yes, you're right. I've noticed that now, and it really is a
    bit annoying that it starts the viewer.

    I hope this will be solved in future release. BTW, and when
    it is suppose to be released a new version?
