Box Keep - Minicalendar Text Framing and Background Shading

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page
Advantages:any type of object, including groups of objects, can be used.
Disadvantages:requires changes to the QuarkXPress GridTemplate and less flexible than box modify as the individual object can only be kept or not (but not modified).


The Box Keep MiniCalendar Framing and Shading option specifies that the box object located at the tab position of the current MiniCalendar date should be kept. It is the opposite of the box delete option.

Referring to the example on the right:


The option applies to the boxes located on the layer FrameX_SomeName where X is the layer number set in the on layer field and SomeName is a name you can use to identify the layer, but is ignored otherwise.

Contrary to the box create option, when using the box keep option, the boxes to be kept/displayed, must be set on every possible date position in the GridTemplate.

An important advantage of the box keep option is that the "boxes" located at each date position can be any type of box (ovals, round cornered boxes, ...) as well as PictureBoxes and even groups of objects.


The delete others option is used to delete all other objects located at the same position but on a different layer than FrameX_SomeName. This means that the present object type will be the only one appearing at the present position, even if another condition is also true.


The other Minicalendar Text Framing and Shading options are: Text, Box Create, Box Modify, Box Delete.
