Tokens with surrounding braces

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

If your output file contains tokens that have not been converted, and these tokens appear with the surrounding braces (for example : [a1Mmmm]), this comes from an error that QuarkXPress encountered when trying to perform the token conversions specified by Q++. This is usually not a token error, but rather an error due to the QuarkXPress file(s) used or the parameterization of the internal QuarkXPress.

 

If the non-converted tokens appear in your output file without the surrounding braces then you should go to the previous topic.

 

Case 1 : If the corresponding run-time message mentions a color that cannot be found or created, then you are trying to use a color that was defined in one of your GridTemplates, but never actually used. For more information see the topic on colors and Quark.

 

Case 2 : If the corresponding run-time message mentions an object has an invalid page number, then there is a stray object off any of the pages of the GridTemplate. Remove that object, rescan your grid and regenerate and the problem should have gone.

 

Case 3 : If the corresponding run-time message are of the following type

 

trying to put text in non-textbox

first property of object XXX is not 1

caught unknow exception (not always)

 

then your QuarkXPress file has been damaged and you should re-create it.
