You deserve a break

Wait for a natural break not working

Hi,

I enjoy the reminders to take a break, but the time-outs can be very disruptive (with mine popping up in the middle of typing this, matter of fact)/ I have the Schedule "When this break is due:" as "Wait for a natural break" though this doesn't seem to have any effect and the setting is not adhered to by the timer. It simply barges in the room no matter what the sign on the door says... :}

Please help.

Thanks,
matt

Re: Wait for a natural break not working

The option to wait for a natural break will wait for up to a minute, but then have the break anyway — since if you are working so intensely that you don't pause for a few seconds, you really need a break.

Hmm, ok. That actually makes sense. Thanks!
