H4 to F1 Visa Interview and I539 Application

Hello everyone,

We submitted I539 application a few months back for my spouse but because of the long wait times decided to go to India and appear for an F1 visa interview.
Do we need to withdraw the I539 application before she appears for the interview?
Or does it automatically gets canceled since you traveled outside the US?

Please share your experience if someone has been through similar situation.

Thank you
