You deserve a break

audio does not stop when skipping breaks


I have Time Out 2.0.2 set to play audio files during breaks. When I skip a break via Time Out's "skip break" button, the break visual goes away but the audio keeps playing. It seems the only way to stop the audio is to quit Time Out. The Time Out 1 releases had this problem occasionally; it happens every time with Time Out 2.0.2.

I didn't notice a way to search the forums, to see if this problem had already been reported.

Re: audio does not stop when skipping breaks

I have two solutions for you:

  1. The best solution is to add a Fadeout Sound action for After Any End. That will fade out the sound whether you finish the break or skip/postpone it. (You can of course add separate fadeout actions for each case if you wish.)
  2. If you don't do that (e.g. if you're not yet a supporter), you can use the Stop Sound command in the action (cog) menu to manually stop any playing sound.

FYI, you can search the forums via the search field at the bottom of the page.
