Manual says that you set an argument to a program name that will be your interrupt program.
It also implies that you must stop execution, and that is what I have found to be true by experimenting with it.
My PLC must issue a Stop (or one happens and is detected), and then the 'interrupt' can be used.

But the manual implies that at the moment of using the interrupt program, the main program motion will also resume and must be stopped. That is not my experience. There is no explicit need to stop the current 'motion,' since execution was stopped already before you can even use the interrupt, and there is no need to worry about that motion if you don't need to resume it, because running the interrupt program does not also automatically resume the main program (unless the interrupt program is programmed to do so, using a path save/restore and StartMove).

I do have the example code that lets me return back to what was happening before, such as a move in progress, if I need to, BUT I was wondering if the difference between the manual's text and actual use was just due to an outdated manual, or what.
