Viewing Template Information

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

When you select a Template in the Templates Manager, Q++Studio displays information about it as a Template, and the GridTemplate from which it originated, in the Template Information Panel which occupies the bottom half of the screen.



There are 3 buttons on the Template Info Toolbar.


Regenerate can be used to regenerate the GridTemplate, as a QuarkXPress .qxd file, from the database. This is useful if the original GridTemplate was deleted or damaged.


View opens the current GridTemplate in QuarkXPress.


Modify is used to change the properties of the current Template.


Below these buttons, you will find information about the creation and last modification dates of both the selected GridTemplate and Template, as well as a list of colors defined in the current GridTemplate (the default Quark system colors, those which cannot be deleted, are identified by a grey background).


Hint: right-click on this grid

to copy the list of colors

and values to the clipboard.


Click on any of the columns to sort the colors accordingly.


The numerical value to the right of each color name corresponds to the RGB value associated with each color and is the one that must be used if you want to change colors in a macro (not as part of the macro resulting actions).


To the right are thumbnail pictures of each page of the scanned template. When you change preview page, the list of all the textboxes in that page gets updated. Similarly, when you select one of the textboxes in the list, a textual preview of the textbox contents appears in the rightmost part of the information panel.


To edit the properties of a Template, select it in the Templates Manager, and click on the Properties button.
