Find File Dialog

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

The Q++Studio Find File dialog is used to let Q++Studio search for a file for you, usually used to update the path of a GridTemplate or PlainQXD file which has been moved.

 

Search fields if you are using EFS to locate QuarkXPress files (RECOMMENDED)

 

When this dialog appears, Q++Studio will have automatically filled the Search for field with the name of the file you are searching for (you can use the * and ? wildcards).

 

If you are using EFS to locate QuarkXPress files (RECOMMENDED), then the Search in field is automatically set to the QxdFiles sub-folder of your local server, as EFS search is so fast that there is no noticeable speed gain in narrowing the search to a sub-folder. In addition, if you have specified a secondary HTTP server in your EFS settings, then the IP address of that secondary server will also be displayed.

 

Otherwise (NOT RECOMMENDED), if you are not using EFS to locate QuarkXPress files, then the Search in field allows you to restrict the search to a given path (the default path proposed to you, here, can be set in your Path Preferences). Because the non-EFS search method can be much slower, if you are able to restrict your search to a specific sub-folder of the QxdFiles folder, then the search will be much faster (though always much slower than the same search using EFS).

 

When the above options have been set, press the Search for button.

 

 

 

Note that, if you are in either a Single Site with Remote Users or a Multiple Site configuration, and if you have specified a secondary HTTP Server in your EFS preferences, then the search will also be performed on the WAN server located at the secondary location, and any file found at that location will be indicated by the WAN\\ prefix.

 

Files found at the secondary HTTP serverlocation are indicated by the WAN\\ prefix      

 

You can then click on any of these files located on a remote WAN server and click on the Download button to download that file from the remote WAN server to your local file server (at the end of the download, the search is automatically performed again and the downloaded file should then be visible as a local file).

 

When the search is over you can select on of the matching files found and press the Select button, or change the search options and press Search for to launch another search.
