To add or modify Saint/Nameday :
|1.||Open the Saints and Namedays Manager|
|2.||Select the holidays set whose saints you want to create or modify.|
|3.||Select the Saints/Namedays tab on the right side of the dialog.|
Saints/Namedays are listed at the right of the tabbed control. If a Saints/Namedays list has never been generated for the current holidays set, you can use the Generate Saints button to generate the list.
A month toolbar at the top allows you to easily navigate the list, and a record toolbar at the left contains 3 buttons which respectively let you modify the current Saint/Nameday, save changes and cancel changes. To the right of the record toolbar is a panel displaying the status of the list.
The list's columns are :
|Month and Day||These are generated by Q++ and cannot be modified (hence their gray background).|
|Sex||Whether the Saint/Nameday was a man or woman. You can also specify "none" if the name is not the name of a person, or is the name of more than one person.|
|Saint's Name||This is the name which will appear in the diary output file as replacement for one of the saints tokens. Note that any underscore character "_" (without the quotes) contained in this string will be replaced by a non-breaking space and that a tilde character "~" (without the quotes) contained in this string will be replaced by a normal space.|
To the left of the list of Saint/Nameday, you will find the area where Saints/Namedays are modified. To modify one of the saints :
•Select the Saint/Nameday you wish to modify in the list of saints. Remember that you can use the navigation toolbar at the top of the list.
•Once the Saint/Nameday is selected you can start modifying its sex and name directly. The record toolbar and status indicator will change to reflect the modified state of the current Saint/Nameday.
•Either confirm the changes by clicking on the checkmark button, or cancel changes by clicking on the button representing an "x".
Note that :
•If you move to another Saint/Nameday in the list while a saint was being modified, Q++ will assume you wanted to save the changes made.
•Closing the Saints and Namedays Manager without saving changes to a currently modified saint is equivalent to canceling the latest change you have made.
Usually, a list of Saints/Namedays does not change from one year to the next, but if required you can specify that one set be used until a given year and another set be used from that year onward.
