Working on a Catalogue with 3500 SKus and "old "Prices.
OSX Lion and Quark 8.5

Textbox contains that
ski 23838.2 free text       $/Piece  23,49
ski sie.2039  free text       $/Piece  11,49
ski 294.33  free text       $/Piece  12,44
sku 4949.33  freetext       $/Piece  14,55

another Textbox contains
29494   free text    $/Piece 29,49

and so on...

The SKUs  "94949" and the Prices  "23,29"  have on character styles  named
"SKU" and "Price"

Now all 3500 Prices  changes.

I could create a txt file looks  like

sku;oldprice;newprice;     
94959; 23,49;45,23;
94959; 23,49;45,23;
94959; 23,49;45,23;
94959; 23,49;45,23;

But how can i apply the changes on my quark documents..

Found some intesting posts but no working solution for me :/

Hlp Pls.

Pay attention! You did not differenciate open and close quotation marks! You set both in the same variable so the last one crashes the previous one. If you set my_variable to "anything", my_variable is then equal to the string "anything"; if you later on set my_variable to 5, then my_variable is not "anything" any more but 5 (as integer in this case). Does it make sense?

Hi! I can't seem to get the German quotation marks being part of a word neither. Though the copied glyph seems to be processed correctly for changing its delimit type, it's not taken into account in the next step that is applying the Char Style to the word. Odd!  :-\

Also I'm really confused about it but the old delimit table is not restorable as such. So you'd need to restore every single delimit item on its own. The same in the error handler! I'm afraid the table is now changed because of that and thus it's not the default one as shipped with the app. The same most probably occurred here so I'll somehow copy it from QXP 9.2 and restore it in QXP 9.3. Hope you can restore the default too. If not, please report.

Quark XPress scripting / QUARK | Selecting Web-addresses
« Last post by gestyle on June 25, 2012, 10:52:26 AM »
Hello!

Iím working on a city-guide, approx 160 pages. The following script filters the webaddresses through the whole document and applies a dedicated style I created for them. Itís nearly perfect Ė here are a screenshot-explanation and the actual sript-version:

https://dl.dropbox.com/u/79604662/2012-06-25_APPLESCRIPT_MODIFYING_DELIMIT_TYPE_9_10.png

https://dl.dropbox.com/u/79604662/Webaddressfilter_30.2.scpt

Whatís missing: Iíd like the script to also select the quotation marks (99, low 99 and 66) with the rest of the webaddresses in a single step. My syntax seems not to work properly.

I received some help but Iím not fit enough in oder to fix it all. Hints would be appreciated!

:)


Iím on QUARK 8.5.1 and MAC OS 10.7.4 for this project.

yes I'm with you :)

Depending on how your text is set, you should. Checking for text whose character style is Price, target the 2 last chars if eligible (donít know if every single price shows cent units), then apply a specific (even AS-created) character style sheet. Are you with me?

uhhm first thanks for reply
second sorry i mixed it up .... i mean typetricks  and the apply the style price..

but i think i know what you mean ...
i should script offset behind cent-point and apply type changes direct ?

Xtensions sometimes have their own dictionary and are scriptable. But not all of them. So I guess that one is not scriptable.
Youíd better think differently (if possible! Iím not dealing with prices nor Styletricks Ė or is it Typetricks? Ė so I donít know if itís doable) and change the prices would it be by scripting.

Hello Community...
search won't help me..
so i ask :)

How can i use the Price Style from the style tricks XT in Q8 in applescript

using "price" oder "Price" won't do anything.

I need it because of update XLS table withs prices destroys applied price style in shared bigger price tags near the product picture.
