Property of the ScriptLines: BlankPages, DiaryGridLines, PlaceHolders, PDFpages, QuarkPages.

 

This property is used to specify when to skip/exclude one of the above types of ScriptLines.

 

This is useful for diaries where the number of pages inserted depends on the number of days in February (ie. if the current year is a leap year or not).

 

For example, Skip Line property might be useful to add a page of notes in years where February has only 28 days, to maintain a total number of pages, as shown in the example on the right.

 

Skipping can be based on based on the following criteria:

 

Ignore

This option means that the current Insert ScriptLine is not skipped due to this option.

Leap Year Script

The current ScriptLine will be skipped whenever the Year property of the Current Script is a leap year.

Non-Leap Year Script

The current ScriptLine will be skipped whenever the Year property of the Current Script is not a leap year.

Odd Script Year

The current ScriptLine will be skipped whenever the Year property of the Current Script is odd (not evenly divisible by 2).

Even Script Year

The current ScriptLine will be skipped whenever the Year property of the Current Script is even (not evenly divisible by 2).

 

Although the Skip Line property can be used in ScriptLines that belong to an insert block, it is usually simpler to use the skip insert property to skip the entire insertion block, and therefore the Skip Line property is usually used for ScriptLines that are part of the front pages and back pages.
