XE3 build 22452 of 19-jan-2021


Documentation for the Q++Studio diary and calendar automation and publishing software, the choice of the world's foremost diary and calendar publishers, since 1999, to automate the typesetting of their diaries and calendars, reliably and efficiently.


January 19, 2021  (build 22452)


The Q++Studio desktop documentation has been migrated from the legacy CHM format (last updated by Microsoft in 1998) to the eWriter format, a single-file embedded version of the WebHelp format with its full table of contents and user interface.


The database of worldwide public holidays that is included in Q++Studio has been extended to cover the following Indian States and Union Territories: Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Dadra and Nagar Haveli and Daman and Diu, Lakshadweep, Meghalaya, Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland, Sikkim, and Tripura. The database of worldwide public holidays that is included in Q++Studio now covers all 28 States and 8 Union Territories of India.


If QuarkXPress was open before Q++Studio was launched, then the rescan current template button and menu would be de-activated until you tried to generate for the first time (JMata, 11-jan-2021).

Fixed a bug in the calculation of recurring holidays based on the Bhutanese, Burmese, Mongolian and Tibetan lunar calendars, which would begin at the very end of December, and last for many days, into January. Concretely, this only applied to some of the public holidays of the Indian state of Sikkim (Tesla, 01-jan-2021).


December 31, 2020  (build 22364)


Q++Studio now supports version 16.2 of QuarkXPress 2020, the latest update to QuarkXPress 2020 (this update to QuarkXPress 2020 is only available if you have an up-to-date Quark Advantage Plan subscription).


The code that prevents facing pages diaries output files from starting on a left page, was also being applied to non-facing pages output files, and this sometimes caused problems (Alpha Edition, 01-dec-2020).


November 30, 2020  (build 22321)


Q++Studio now supports version 16.1.2 of QuarkXPress 2020, the latest update to QuarkXPress 2020.


The message 175365 has been changed to a warning, to make this message's behavior more coherent with the related message 174395.

The code that generates message 178585 has been expanded to cover cases when the file extension of the output file corresponds to neither a QuarkXPress 3-5 document nor a QuarkXPress 6-2020 project file.
