acquire resource priority vs. priority of processors

Using a dispatcher which are servicing various processors. In processflow, I would like an operator to abort assisting a processing when I ask to acquire a resource. I've made the acquire resource a higher priority but it still waits until the processor is completed. Thoughts?

I guess my advice in your other question wasn't the best. I didn't know that you were mixing 3d-logic and process flow.

The solution is to use "Create Task Sequence" activities after all, because simply acquiring a resource has no influence on the tasks of a task executer. To get the operator to prioritize the process flow task sequence and resume its current one afterwards, it should be set to "preempt only".
