Using a beta version of the Q++ Xtension

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Background : Whenever you install a Q++ update, two versions of the Qpp xtension are installed : the latest safe version (ie. the version that has been tested by other users over a length of time) and a beta version (ie. a very recent version of the Qpp xtension that includes new features, but has not been thoroughly tested yet). By default, the safe version of the xtension is enabled after each update, and unless you wish to specifically test a new feature you have requested, you should use the safe version. You can, however, choose to use the beta version from the Tools/Qpp Xtensions menu.

 

Cause : This message occurs if you are using the beta version of the currently selected QuarkXPress version.

 

Note that this message can occur regardless of the version of QuarkXPress that you are using. It means that the current xtension has not been fully tested yet, and is different from the message that support for the current version of QuarkXPress is in its beta phase.

 

Consequence : You may encounter problems when you try to scan GridTemplates (rare) or generate diaries (mostly). Usually these problems should be limited to the new features that have been added to the xtension, but you should always contact technical support before using the beta version of the Qpp xtension.

 

Solutions :

 

Use most recent safe Quark Xtension : The version of QuarkXPress that is used on your workstation may have been changed accidentally, or you may have moved to a more recent version of QuarkXPress and uninstalled the previous one (this is not recommended, you should always keep previous versions of QuarkXPress on your workstation ... you never know when you might need them).

 

Change Quark Version : The version of QuarkXPress that is used on your workstation may have been changed accidentally, or you may have moved to a more recent version of QuarkXPress and uninstalled the previous one (this is not recommended, you should always keep previous versions of QuarkXPress on your workstation ... you never know when you might need them).

 

Reset QuarkXPress versions manually : Opens the Preferences dialog and lets you do one of the above, manually, as well as set other parameters related to QuarkXPress, such as the locations of the QuarkXPress executable on your PC.
