QuarkPages ScriptLines are used to insert "plain" QuarkXPress pages into a Script. By "plain" we mean that Q++ will not try to scan these pages for tokens, it will simply copy them, as is, into the output file. This usually corresponds to information pages.

 

 

The principal property of QxdPages is the "Quark File" which tells Q++ which file to use. The "Selected Pages" property allows you to select only some of the pages contained in this file. The values of the properties Quark Page Count, Times Repeated and Total Page Count are displayed in the corresponding ScriptLine of the Scripts Editor.

 

 

You also can choose to have the text of the Label property appear in the Scripts Editor, or the Quark File filename chosen. This behavior is set, for each individual user, through the Miscellaneous Preferences.

 

All the standard ScriptLine manipulations can be used on DiaryGridLines. Additionally, the following manipulations are also available :

 

Preview : Use this button or menu item to display a small image preview of the QuarkXPress file underlying the selected ScriptLine.

 

       

 

Note how pages that are not part of the Selected Pages are clearly identified as such (above right).

 

Open File : Opens the file underlying the selected ScriptLine in QuarkXPress.

 

Re-scan : Rescans or reinspects the Quark file underlying the selected ScriptLine.

 

Clear QxdFile Link : Tells Q++ that the selected QuarkPages does not refer to any PlainQxd (this is the state when you create a new script).
