Scan Log : Viewing Scanning Messages

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

The Scan Log debug tool lets you view any message generated by QuarkXPress or by Q++'s token analysis during the most recent scan that was performed on your workstation. The filename of the most recently scanned file is displayed at the top of the Scan Log dialog, along with the date and time at which it was scanned.



The QuarkXPress Scanning Log zone displays a log of the QuarkXPress xtension activity during the most recent scan. Its information is mainly intended for the use of technical support. It displays, among other things, the paths used ofr the database temporary folders and can be useful to detect problems with the database initialization.


The QuarkXPress Messages zone displays any messages generated by QuarkXPress during scanning. Usually, the presence of any messages here means that the scan failed, as all scanning messages by QuarkXPress are errors (as opposed to warnings or hints).


The Token Analysis Messages zone displays the results of the tokens analysis performed by Q++Studio on the text contained in a scanned GridTemplate. This analysis looks for the most obvious errors, mostly repeated and mismatched braces, and these messages correspond to the ones that appear in the warning displayed after scanning.
