Unexpected DayValue of X on page Y

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

This is one of the rare design-time messages which sometimes appears seemingly erroneously. We stress the word "seemingly"; this message means that Q++ has trouble understanding/guessing the structure of your GridTemplate, from the tokens it contains. Q++ may be wrong to misunderstand your grid, but it does, and you must address the issue. Luckily there are many easy solutions.

 

Cause : The DayValue of some of the tokens in the current GridTemplate do not make sense to Q++, based on the Template structure set in the Templates Manager. The circumstances that trigger this message depend on the expected DayValues of the current Template structure.

 

Consequences : If this message is founded, the consequences on the output file are enormous. Usually the dates on all pages, except the first, will be totally wrong. This is particularly true for monthly grids. If you ignore this message, make sure you know why you feel safe in doing so.

 

Solutions :

 

Correct the Token in name.qxd : Opens the GridTemplate in QuarkXPress to let you change token (if you mistakenly typed a [77d] token instead of a [7d], for example).

 

Modify Template Properties : Lets you select another structure for the current GridTemplate, for example changing from an initial design of 2 days on 2 pages to 7 days on 6 pages, if the error came from there. This also often hapens with monthly grids where one tests with 1m/1p and then duplicates the month multiple times once the 1 month works.

 

If there is no obvious error in your template, or in the way you set the Template structure, then you should use DayValue marker tokens to eliminate the guesswork on Q++'s part.
