    If you  are creating your TOC icons they will be added to the folio when you create it. I'm not sure where the sidecar would come in besides that.

     

    Can you expand on that a bit?

    Bob's right. You don't specify the toc.png files in the sidecar.xml file. If you add them to the article folders, they're used automatically. Example:

     

    <folio folder>

         <article folder>

             00_cover_h.indd

             00_cover_v.indd

              toc_cover.png

        <article folder>

             01_ahab_h.indd

             01_ahab_v.indd

             toc_ahab.png

    are they are only used during importing articles, or also during add or

    update?

    FWIW, I’ve never bothered to actually create those icons. I leave that to software to do.

    Hello Johannes,

     

    Does it make any difference for the process, the moment that you are importing the TOC images?

    yes, I make also my own designs, the square and cropped ones look too bad

    most the time.
