Page and Signature Layout

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

In the left half of the Script Preview window, Q++Studio uses tabs to display the number of Signatures and a grid to show the pages it will generate based on the current script.



A TrackBar at the top of the pages list shows the current range of pages being displayed, and allows you to rapidly navigate to other pages.


Each page shows an icon representing the type of ScriptLine it corresponds to, and the page number.


If a page came from a DiaryGridLine or QxdPages, you can see its preview by double-clicking on it.


If a page came from a DiaryGridLine, then the beginning and ending dates of the current grid are also displayed.


The pages that belong to the selected tab's signature are displayed in white.


To drill-down to a finer level of preview, select any of the dated pages. The calendar at the top right will display shows the dates contained in that page.


If some pages display the text no dates on this page (see example below) and this is not accurate, then you should use DayValue Marker tokens to indicate to Q++Studio which dates are present on that page.



If the number of signature pages and the number of defined pages of your script are not the same, then you will have some pages marked as Page not defined, as shown in the example below :



These will come out in the output file as blank pages, unless you use the Trim Blank Pages option (Unicode).
