SDL Tridion: Configuring the Event System Thread Timeout for Debugging

Ever want to go and make a cup of tea while on a breakpoint in debugging SDL Tridion TOM.NET Event System Code?

Just open Tridion.ContentManager.config and change the threadTimeout attribute to a value which allows adequate steeping time. Here I have set it to 5 minutes (3600 seconds).

You’ll need to restart the TcmServiceHost process after you do this to see the change.

Remember to change it back afterwards or you might get some slow code hanging your UI.
