Use sidecar.xml for updating article properties
If you want to use the sidecar.xml file to update your article metadata or change the order of articles, you can use the Folio Builder panel to import the sidecar.xml file.
1. Create or edit the sidecar.xml file for your folio. See Create a metadata sidecar file for importing articles<http://help.adobe.com/en_US/digitalpubsuite/using/WS67cb9e293e2f1f60-60a064012f65fafa88-80 00.html>.
2. Copy or move the sidecar.xml file to its own folder.
3. In the Folio Builder panel, open the folio you want to edit, and choose Import from the panel menu.
4. Select Import Multiple Articles, specify the folder in which the sidecar.xml file is located, and click OK.
I knew you could do it somehow but didn't know the method
It should be simple and straightforward. Are you getting this error when attempting to import the sidecar?
Is your sidecar properly formed? Can you post it?
That's odd. As Casey said, it could be an improperly formed sidecar.xml file, but that shouldn't result in the #3115 error. If you get the #3115 error, you should delete the DPS temporary files.
On the Mac, these are located in [user] > Library > Preferences > StageManager.[###] > Local Store. Delete everything in the Local Store folder. (If you're using Lion OSX, hold down Option and choose Go > LIbrary.)
In Windows, it's something like users > [user] > Application Data > StageManager.[###] > Local Store or users > [user] > AppData > Roaming > StageManager.[###] > Local Store. You might need to shoow all hidden items in Explorer.
Ah guys, sorry I didn't see this reply.
I will test those now - Interesting
No unfortunately I can't post the sidecar - but I used a Vaildator to make sure it was properly formed - and it works on initial import...
Thanks for the tips tho I will try those out now!
Hmm that didn't work either! but it did a great job of clearing out my builder panel!
