Sigil not finding stylesheet

Hi,

I've just upgraded to the latest version of Sigil and have been following the instructions for stylesheets provided here. To wit:

Quote:
Click on the tab for your content, if it's open, or double-click on the name of the file you want to apply the code to in the book browser (the left hand pane).
Click the "Code View" button
Add a new line after the line that starts with "<title>"
copy this code: <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="../Style/Style0001.css" />
Paste into the new line you made in step c. (make sure that if you re-named your stylesheet, you change this line too.)
I have followed this exactly, pasted my code in the proper place, made sure the names match, but Sigil isn't finding the stylesheet.

Anyone have any ideas what might be wrong?

Thanks!

That's the manual way of doing it. All you need to do is select the file(s) in the left pane (book list) that you want to apply the style sheet to, then right click and select "link style sheet". It will give you a list of the available style sheets. Put a check in the box next to the stylesheet(s) you want!!

Cheers,

It also makes it dead easy to have even 5 or 10 stylesheets and apply them to different chapters having different kinds of content. Highlight and select the one you want to use and you're done.
