Q++Studio supports the latest version of QuarkXPress 2020 (version 16.3).

Q++Studio supports the latest version of QuarkXPress 2019 (version 15.2.5).

Q++Studio supports the latest version of InDesign 2021 (version 16.1).


Added a popup menu to the xml script viewer and the xml scripts editor, to conveniently copy any of the identifiers of the current node, to the search bar, to find all similar script lines, or script line properties or even options of a specific value, and then easily access any of them.

Added the design-time message 185250 to warn you if if the saras property associated with a diary grid line or the book format script line refers to a saraset which has been deleted.


Fixed a bug whereby some of the scanning messages of Quark Pages and InDesignPages would not be issued, if the only difference between the date-time of the last scan, and the date-time of the current file on disk, was due to an hour summer versus winter time difference (23-feb-2021).

Fixed some UI glitches whereby some of the spin value controls of the macros resulting text style actions and SARAs were displaying as active, even when deactivated (02-feb-2021).


January 31, 2021  (build 22478)


Added a new native formatting method of displaying 23/30 and 24/31 combined dates in minicalendars, which is supported by both QuarkXPress and InDesign.

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 Log Viewer now remains active even when another modal dialog is being displayed (for example, during diary generation, it is now possible to refresh the log as displayed in the Log Viewer).

The new message 185185 now informs you if there is a problem with the zip file containing the related QuarkXPress, InDesign and PDF files, and places that zip file in a folder for you to open manually at the end of script importation.

The new message 185180 now alerts you if the file selected during script importation is not a proper exported migration file.

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.


The color macros would be ignored when used as part of the display settings for minicalendar week numbers,minicalendar weekdays, or minicalendar week bands (Lecas, 26-jan-2021).

The Clear All Settings response option to message 175365 would only partially clear settings, and these settings would only be fully cleared when the script was saved (JMata, 26-jan-2021).

The script exportation results log would be blank if script exportation was performed more than once in a session (20-jan-2021).

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).
