A Q++ Sara is essentially a "search and replace" command, that Q++ saves in SaraSets for re-use. As such it is made up of "Search Text" and "Replace Text".


The reason for the above over-simplified definition of Q++ Saras is that the interface of the Sara Editor contains many options. It is easy to be overwhelmed and forget how simple the basic idea behind a Sara is. Although Saras are "search and replace" commands, to follow the convention used in the QuarkXPress, we will use the terms "find" and "change".


Since Saras are automated, the user cannot be asked to confirm every change on a case by case basis, so Q++ adds "Page Range" to allow you to specify, ahead of time, the range of pages over which the Sara is applied.
