Return to chapter overviewNext page


Support for the XE2 version of Q++Studio will end soon. (more details)


Unless specified, as of June 1, 2018, the new features or fixes, below, do not apply to the XE2 version of Q++Studio.


June 21, 2018 (build 19313)


New and Improved


The Holidays Synchronization now keeps any Holiday Name Variations that were in your holidays names but are not in the Q++Samples Holidays.

Added a design-time message to warn you if one of your SARAs is blank, which can cause speed problems and/or unwanted wholesale text formatting changes (at best) or a Quark crash (for textboxes containing a lot of text).


Fixed and Corrected


Fixed some UI glitches in the SARAs interface; the UI would not be properly updated when deleting a SARA and speeded-up the copying of SARAs from the database (18-june-2018).

The Turkish Capitalization setting would be ignored for user-defined tokens (Alpha Edition, 3-june-2018).

The Grid Extent for daily grids spanning 7 days within a number of pages that is a multiple of 7 (for example: 7 days/7 pages, 7 days/14 pages, 7 days/21 pages) would be calculated for entire weeks rather than for the exact number of days spanned by the Begin Rule, End Rule, thus leading to a higher estimated page count, although the actual generated number of pages was correct (Alpha Edition, 3-june-2018).



May 31, 2018 (build 19242)


New and Improved


Both the XE3 and XV4 versions of Q++Studio support QuarkXPress 2018, officially released on May 16, 2018.

Improved the detection, during scanning, of objects that are fully off the page.


Fixed and Corrected


The application server would not be automatically updated after an update of the main program.



April 30, 2018 (build 19161)


New and Improved


Both the XE3 and XV4 versions of Q++Studio now support the latest beta 6 version of QuarkXPress 2018.

Both the XE3 and XV4 versions of Q++Studio support the latest beta 4 version of QuarkXPress 2018.


Fixed and Corrected


Nothing this month.



March 31, 2018 (build 19012)


New and Improved


By including "HYPH" (in uppercase, without the double-quotes) in the name of one or more H&J assets, you can now specify that these H&J assets should keep hyphenation even though you are using the recommended default Remove Hyphenation diary generation option.

Both the XE3 and XV4 versions of Q++Studio support the recently-announced QuarkXPress 2018.


Fixed and Corrected


If the holidays generation dialog was closed before starting to generate holidays, then the date of the holidays generation would be updated, even though no generation had actually occurred (15-mar-2018).

Settings of frame attributes via Macros were being ignored since the changes made for Quark 2018, a few weeks ago (Letts, 6-mar-2018).

Fixed an error which would occur when trying to set the default values of GridOptions in Preferences (Brunnen, 5-mar-2018)



February 28, 2018 (build 18821)


New and Improved


.Q++Studio is compatible with the recently-released QuarkXPress update QuarkXPress 2017.21 (13.2.1 build 29267).


Fixed and Corrected


Changed the database navigator of the Sara Sets Manager, due to problems encountered by users trying to create new Sara Sets or rename them (Zettler, 13-feb-2018).

Fixed an error that would appear when displaying the Plain QXD Inspection Messages dialog if any of the messages did not refer to any specific page, as would be the case for messages warning about locked layers (Zettler, 12-feb-2018).

Fixed the spurious appearance of message 179135 when using a negative holidays response token (Zettler, 12-feb-2018).



January 31, 2018 (build 18731)


New and Improved


Launch of the beta version of the new XE3 version of Q++Studio.


Fixed and Corrected


No warning would be issued for undefined colors of false Resulting Actions of Macros or the Default Line Ending of GenTokens (25-jan-2018).

No warning would be issued if the Paragraph Formatting settings of Minicalendar Options contained either a color not used in any of the Script's templates of an undefined GridOptions color (Hamelin, 24-jan-2018).

Highlighted dates would be offset by a day in the Minicalendar Options' All Dates of Spread, if the Grid Options'  was set to Automatic (JMata, 19-jan-2018).

Fixed a rare case where an Insert would not appear the second time a Script was previewed, without re-opening the Script (JMata, 17-jan-2018).

Trying to rename a Script in the Scripts Explorer could sometimes fail due to the Scripts table not being open (Alpha Edition, 9-jan-2018).
