The appearance of layers and the objects that are placed on them. Note that the components placed on each layer are also shown in InDesign (and in QuarkXPress 2021 or above).
Some remarks about layers in QuarkXPress and InDesign, and how they are treated in Q++Studio:
•Each object belongs to one layer, and its selection marks appear in the color of its layer.
•Layers can be created below the default layer.
•All objects of a layer are above (in front of) all objects of the layer below (in the above example, all object of layer 3 are in front of all objects of layer 2). This means that the change z-order macro resulting action will only affect a textbox's z-order within the same layer.
As shown at the bottom of the image on the right, the components placed on each layer are also visible and accessible in InDesign and in QuarkXPress 2021-2024.
The one very important exception to the last point above, is that the default layer is never ignored by Q++Studio (warning 180535 will be generated if one of the GridTemplates has a hidden default layer).
Note that there is no concept of a default layer in InDesign.
This means that all the elements of all the invisible layers of any template will be ignored (the invisible layers are actually deleted from the input files before the pages are copied into the output file).
Layers on Master Pages in Output Files
When using QuarkXPress 2015-2024 or InDesign, it is possible to have layers in master pages, meaning that objects on various layers of their GridTemplate will remain on the same layer in the output file. For this reason, both diary generation options remove gridtemplate layers and remove opf layers are automatically set to false when using QuarkXPress 2015-2024 or InDesign.
