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:
Thanks for that, that explains it all - Sorry I thought the TOC preview would have to be written somewhere into the coded metadata
I didn't realise that they were imported aswell if they were left in the _stack folder
Thanks again Guys
are they are only used during importing articles, or also during add or
Hmm that's a really interesting point!!
FWIW, I’ve never bothered to actually create those icons. I leave that to software to do.
Does it make any difference for the process, the moment that you are importing the TOC images?
for a lot of pages the standard TOC preview doesn't look great as it takes a snap of a square section of the page, No thank you!!
I want my own!!
Thanks again Bob Bringhurst for expanding and answering my first question!
yes, I make also my own designs, the square and cropped ones look too bad
most the time.
