XV4 64-bit build 22435 of 15-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 15, 2021  (build 22435)


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.


Fixed a bug in the enumeration of installed fonts for screen fonts that were accessible by InDesign, but not by QuarkXPress (13-jan-2021).

If QuarkXPress or InDesign 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 logs generated by Q++Studio are now displayed in the new Log Viewer which makes it easy to search for a specific token or text value or any element, either by filtering the log or by jumping from one match to the next.

Q++Studio beta support for the latest version of InDesign 2021 (InDesign 16.0.1).


The nightly backup server utility no longer creates spurious backups, and uploading them via FTP, for temporary and backup sets created during script exportation and script importation.


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.

Q++Studio beta support for the latest version of InDesign 2020 (InDesign 15.1.3).

The new convert script to/from InDesign feature converts a script, or a copy thereof, from QuarkXPress to InDesign, or vice-versa.


Added code to issue the new warning message 185030 if a call to one of the textbox resizing functions is made on a textbox which is rotated (that is to say, whose angle is not 0­°).

The design of the filtering summary, at the bottom of advanced data grids, has been improved to make the various elements of the filter more apparent. Also, the filter conditions now display the script type as text instead of its numerical value (ie. "Monthly" instead of "3").

The XML generated when saving a script now includes entries for all the possible cases of MonthHeaders and GenTokens, even if those that are de-activated, or do nothing. This makes it possible, for example, to copy the GenTokens5 options via XML from one script to another script, even if there are no GenTokens5 options defined for the target script.

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 nor an InDesign file.


Multiline text values would be truncated after the first line in the XML representation of scripts (this was only a display bug, and did not affect any of the XML processing).

Fixed a bug in the saving of minicalendar formatting sequence, if the order of the weekdays formatting was moved to the very end of the sequence of formats to be applied to a given minicalendar (JMata, 18-nov-2020).
