Listing Diary Generation Messages

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

If Q++ and/or QuarkXPress issues run-time messages while generating a diary, you can get a list of these messages by clicking on the List Messages button of the diary generation status window.



The Diary Generation Messages issued by Q++ and QuarkXPress during diary generation are displayed in an advanced data grid which lets you sort, filter or even group the various entries of the list.



When you select a message, its full text appears in the Full Message area below the list of message (some messages may be longer than the Message column), a rough sketch of the original object is displayed at the bottom left in Original Object, and the p-Code that was executed is displayed on the right in New Value.


If you need a more detailed view of the p-Code sent to QuarkXPress, you can use The p-Code Debugger.


If there are no messages generated, but the output file is not as expected, see the section on Problems with the Output Files.


Also, when you select a message, a preview of the corresponding help topic is displayed on the right in Help Preview.



Click on any of the hyperlinks to jump to the related topic. You can use the Back and Forward buttons to navigate the history of topics view. Click on the View Full Help button at the right to open up the full version of the Q++ Help, which includes graphics, navigation tools and search tools.


Note that even after you have closed the diary generation status window, you can still go back and list the messages from the most recent diary generation, using the Debug/Diary Generation/Error Log menu sequence from the Q++ main window.
