13.9.1 Aborting commands

To abort any command which requires you to type information at the echo area, type Ctrl+G at any point up to where you would normally press Return . For instance, if you type Ctrl+X Ctrl+F in order to open a file, and then decide against it, type Ctrl+G instead of specifying a filename.

If you are using Mac OS editor emulation, press Esc to abort a command.
