Is there any technical reason for maxing out the file size?

I had (naively?) assumed that smaller files, ie one per chapter, would perform better as less of each file needs to be kept in memory at any one time.

Cheers,
Simon.

Generally an eBook reader reads the full file into memory at once. This is why the file size is typically limited to about 300K give or take. An ePub usually consists of many files. Images are read independent of the text files. Smaller files do perform better unless there are links that cause you to have to load another file. This is one reason people put endnotes at the end of each chapter to keep them in the same file.

Of course, if you add ids to any headings manually, then they'll still be there. And now if you want to link directly to the ids, you can just use the new Edit TOC function.
Is this Edit TOC function present now or is it coming?

It make it easier for some people to edit. (I have no problem with what is done BEFORE delivery ).
Performance on portable devices seems better with smaller files. If a feature suggested by Dale is not needed.

Another advantage of keeping things in the same file is that loading a new one could trigger a formatting operation for the new text. If the endnotes are in the file, this has already been done when the chapter in question was opened.

TOC Expansion

It would be very nice if the TOC was always fully expanded or to have a single selection to do so.

Right click on the TOC window. But remembering the settings between generations is something still to work on.

One thing I would like Sigil to do is to renumber the ncx if I take out an entry.

Poof!! I've hacked into your computer from the internet and modified your copy of Sigil to grant your wish. Just right-click on the toc.ncx file in the Book Browser and behold!

Seriously though, that feature's been available for a bit.

And what's even more amusing is that I specifically added this feature because JSWolf asked for it last year.

Maybe there's too many features to find - wonder what we should remove?

As it happens, all the groundwork to get the renumbering to work made it possible to implement the Edit TOC function - so you will be able to just open the TOC in a dialog, delete the entry, and save it - and it'll renumber automatically.

That's if QT 5.0.1 (just released to replace 5.0.0) ever allows user_none to be able to compile the Windows version

I'd forgotten it was Jon who requested it originally. I do remember thinking it was a good idea, though. Wasn't it about the same time that you added the mass file renaming feature?

EDIT: Will Qt 5.0.1 be required for building the next release then?

Remove the feature that causes Tidy to make new styles in the XML.

Guess I missed that one. Glad to know it is there. I'll not be able to use it when getting rid of the contents link because that's just plain stupid to be in the ncx. I'm already at the ToC, so when then go to another ToC from there?

Is there a manual or feature list for Sigil in case there are any other features we may have missed?
