February 15, 2018 (build 18781)


New and Improved


The Holidays Display Surround with and Separator fields are no longer limited to 5 characters.

Added [yr] a new Script Year token variation.

A new set of Saras Change Options, Textbox Saras Change Options, allows you to specify, for each individual SARA, that some of the attributes of the textbox containing the found text be changed (background color and shade, frame, or replacing the textbox by an image).

.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).

Paragraph Saras Change Options would not be applied, unless the Style group checkbox was checked (3-feb-2018).



January 31, 2018 (build 18731)


New and Improved


A new Saras Search Option allows you to specify, for each individual SARA, if it should be performed only on text that has flowed over more than one line.

Textbox actions stemming from Macros, such as changing the background shade and/or color and/or frame/and/or image, can now be applied to specific box of a chain of linked textboxes generated by a Gentokens, for example.

Messages warning about the use of undefined colors in MiniCalendars, Macros or GenTokens, now specify the name of the color as well as indicating the location where it is used (for example in the True or False Macros resulting Actions, or in which Special Case of a GenTokens, or in which specific option of Minicalendar Options).

New module to restore individual data from backup (no need to ask tech support to restore the entire table anymore, you can now restore that holiday you accidentally deleted, or ScriptLine you modified in error, ...).

Added a new topic regrouping all the new features of the XV4 version of Q++Studio.

Updated database engine with built-in support for regular expressions.


Fixed and Corrected


Saras would fail to find text with attributes, when the search pattern used regular expressions (30-jan-2018).

The contents of each textbox of a Template in the Templates Explorer would not be displayed (27-jan-2018).

No warning would be issued for undefined colors of false Resulting Actions of Macros or the Default Line Ending of GenTokens, or for missing fonts used in Saras (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).
