Release: Xdata 8/ for QuarkXPress 8/9

January 24, 2012 by

This patch release of Xdata addresses problems with the format() function and adds pass-thru of the indent-to-here character.


  • Fixed a problem where native indent-to-here characters (#30) were being stripped from imported text.
  • Added negative and zero sections to format()‘s format string, which now allows "positive numbers;negative numbers;zero values" (where sections are separated by semicolons). For example, format("0", "#,###;(#,###);zero") would produce "zero".
  • Fixed the format() function to strip leading zeros, such that format("0","#,###") now returns "" rather than "0". To preserve leading zeros, use a placeholder 0 (zero).
  • Fixed a problem with the format() function where different forms of zero (like 0, 0.00 and -0) weren’t being formatted the same.
