When running an automation that includes a Tell or Input task clicking the Stop button in the dialogue box cancels the dialogue and the automation proceeds to the next task.

If you need the automation to terminate when you click the Stop button you must make sure that in the "Options" menu at the top of the automation window, the "Stop on Errors" option is selected.
