The Scripts Editor, located at the left of the Q++ Main Window, is used to display the ScriptLines of the current script.

 

 

 

To select a ScriptLine, click on it. You will notice that :

 

The Properties Editor is updated with all the properties of the currently selected ScriptLine. This allows you to modify any of its ScriptLine Properties

 

The ScriptLines Toolbar (see below) is modified to reflect the actions which can be performed on the selected line (add, move, copy, modify, disable, delete).

 

Once a ScriptLine is selected :

 

You can use drag and drop to copy or move lines.

 

You can press the F1 key To get help on the selected line.

 

Right-clicking on a ScriptLine displays a popup menu that gives you easy access to all the actions that can be performed for that ScriptLine.

 

Some ScriptLines have additional options :

 

Right-click on any DiaryGridLine or QxdPages to display a popup menu which will let you rescan it or preview it, or open the QuarkXPress file from which it came.

 

Double-click on any DiaryGridLine or QxdPages to display a preview of its Quark file.

 

Double-click on any DiaryGridLine or QxdPages while holding the CTRL key, to open the corresponding QuarkXPress file in QuarkXPress.

 

Note that all the menu options available from the popup menu are also available from the Scripts menu.

 

The ScriptLines Toolbar

 

The ScriptLines Toolbar is a small toolbar at the top of the Scripts Editor. It gives you easy access to all the actions that can be performed for the selected ScriptLine.

 

 

The ScriptLines Toolbar is automatically updated to show what actions are allowed for the currently selected ScriptLine (the corresponding toolbar button is disabled if an action is not allowed).

 

 

For a general discussion of ScriptLines see the chapter ScriptLines.
