The Scripts Menu, accessible from the main menu, is used to manipulate scripts, the representation of diaries in Q++Studio.

 

A few of the menu items of the Scripts Menu correspond to the usual File Menu of other software (New, Open, Save, Save As, Close, Rename, Move and Delete), and do not need any explanation (though they are briefly covered in the topic on the current script).

 

The following scripts menu items, however, are specific to Q++Studio.

 

Scripts Explorer

Opens the Scripts Explorer which, analogously to the Windows Explorer, is used to open, move, copy, delete, examine, preview, export and run scripts.

Recent Scripts

Displays a sub-menu listing the most-recently used scripts, from which you can directly select a script to open. Note that Q++Studio refers to scripts by their unique internal numerical ID and, therefore, renaming a script will not cause it to disappear from the list of recently-used scripts.

Insert ScriptLine

Displays a sub-menu listing the script lines which can be inserted immediately below the script line which is currently selected in the Script Editor. Each of these sub-menus has a corresponding button on the Script Line Toolbar.

Current ScriptLine

Displays a sub-menu listing the actions which can be performed on the script line which is currently selected in the Script Editor. Each of these sub-menus has a corresponding button on the Script Line Toolbar.

List of Uses

Displays a sub-menu listing the available data used by a script reports which each contain a recap of all the sets of a particular type of data used by the current script. There are 6 such reports: holidays (includes one-time-dates), saints (includes saints exceptions), slogans, SARAs, macros, and fonts.

View as XML

Displays the current state of the current script, including changes that are not yet saved (and may never be), in the xml script viewer.

New from XML

Creates a new script from an XML file representing a Q++Studio script. This menu option is only enabled if no script is currently open in the script editor.

Update from XML

Updates the entire current script using an XML file previously exported from a script. If you wish to copy only some part of one XML script to the current script, then you should use the XML Script Editor instead.

 

This menu option is only enabled if a script is currently open in the script editor.

Export to XML

Exports the current script as an XML file.

XML Script Viewer

Opens the XML Script Viewer which displays the XML representation of a script in a hierarchical tree structure.

XML Script Editor

Opens the XML Script Editor which is used to copy compatible elements between any script and the current script, or to perform search and replace on the current script.

 

Finally, the Exit menu item closes Q++Studio.
