How to do it?

I tried to right click elsewhere, tried to press "Esc". This doesn't work.


You need to press the stop key that can be configured in the setting menu. As mentionned by TankorSmash, pressing the stop key is always used to perform an animation cancel with skills that have non-zero cast time.
