The Status Bar is located at the very bottom of the Q++Studio Main Window.


It is composed of 4 zones (from left to right) :


Build Version

The version zone shows the build number of the version of Q++Studio that you are currently running. Build numbers are referred to in the What's New ? help topics, and sometimes a minimum build number must be installed before an update to the Q++Studio World Holidays Samples Database can be updated.


The QuarkXPress Version used is displayed nearby, and corresponds to the QuarkXPress version selected in the Preferences. If your system is configured to be able to use Q++Studio with more than one version of QuarkXPress, then you can change the version of QuarkXPress used by clicking on this zone; a popup menu then appears, allowing you to select another version.


The status zone which displays either additional information about the control that is under your mouse, or during intensive processing by Q++Studio (such as scanning or diary generation), status information about what Q++Studio is currently doing. This zone also often contains more information about a given tooltip. Additionally, during lengthy processes such as scanning and diary generation, a progress bar will appear in this zone, graphically displaying the percentage of completion of the current process.


The date zone displays the full current date.


It is a good idea to glance at the status bar once in awhile. It often contains useful information, almost always related to what you are currently doing.
