The scripts Preferences page of the preferences dialog lets you specify defaults when creating new scripts, and when executing them.
•Do not open a Script: Q++Studio opens without any Script Open.
•Load a blank Script: Q++Studio creates a blank script on opening.
•Display the "Open Script" dialog: presents the scripts in the most recent scripts directory.
•Open MRU Script: automatically opens the last Script that you opened.
Blank pages in new scripts
➢This setting only applies to new scripts.
Include Languages Names in New Script Names: This option lets you specify what reference to languages, if any, should be in the name that Q++Studio automatically proposes to you when you save a script for the first time. There is no particular necessity for the script names to refer to the languages used, since the languages used are displayed separately from the script name in the Scripts Explorer. This is a matter of personal/corporate preference.
The Save scripts as XML is used to specify that scripts be saved as XML, the new way of saving scripts since the summer of 2020, and required to use InDesign.
The main consequence of the DTP format of a script is whether the script's output file is a QuarkXPress or an InDesign file.
•Selecting QuarkXPress or InDesign here means that your script's output file format will be preset to that type of file.
The Display Database Selection Dialog option determines if, at program start-up, the current user is presented with a dialog with a choice of selecting which one of the available databases to connect to (for multi-site and/or multi-database systems).
The Always restructure local tables at start-up option is set to false by default and, if true, will increase the time that Q++Studio takes to start-up, with the remote advantage of preventing an obscure error in one of the temporary tables from forcing you to restart Q++Studio.
