Below are the release notes that document the new features, improvements and bug fixes that were included in the various releases of the XV4 version of Q++Studio in 2023 (previous years' release notes can be found here).


February 7, 2023  (XV4 build 23728)


When using InDesign, the allowed range of baseline shift in the text attributes editor, macro resulting action and saras, has been expanded to -127 to +127. A message is issued if a value is specified that is outside the much smaller range allowed by by QuarkXPress (-27 to +27).


Color macros would not be converted when changing the background or frame color as the result of a macro (Quo Vadis, 7-feb-2023).


January 31, 2023  (XV4 build 23712)


Q++Studio supports the latest update to InDesign 2022 (version 17.4.1), as well as all other InDesign versions from InDesign 2020 to InDesign 2023, inclusively.


Improved the accuracy and user-friendliness of message 104128 when exporting data to Excel.

If you are using both QuarkXPress and InDesign in Q++Studio, then the scripts explorer now displays the type of script near each script (QXP for QuarkXPress or INDD for InDesign).

You can now specify in the preferences, whether styles and colors consistency checks should occur at design-time for QuarkXPress and/or InDesign.


Fixed a scanning error that would occur when using QuarkXPress 2022, ever since the release of QuarkXPress 2023 (Biella, 26-jan-2023).

Fixed the spurious appearance of message 182020 when a sara is using regular expressions (26-jan-2023).

Fixed a few legacy hard-coded changes that used the superior attribute, which is not recognized by InDesign, in the text of recurring holidays, one-time-dates, saints, and slogans. All such occurrences are now automatically changed on-the-fly to superscript, when using InDesign. The behavior of these options when using QuarkXPress has not changed (Quo Vadis, 17-jan-2023).
