Chapters Disarranged

Recently, I'm finding that opening some books in Sigil (most recent version, Windows) results in the book browser displaying the internal XHTML files in alphabetical order (which they shouldn't be). The NCX file still shows the chapters in the correct order.

I am not certain of the exact circumstances that cause this bug to appear. Has anyone else experienced it?

If the opf file is badly broken/malformed/invalid, Sigil wil scrap it and create its own. That's the only time I've ever seen Sigil rearrange files in the Book Browser.

There should be a comment in the opf file indicating that the original opf was broken.

Be sure you don't unintentionally use the Sort function in the book Browser.

Remember 'Alpha Sort' rules:
Numbers sort before Letters
Always pad leading 0's to meet the same # of digits in the highest used:
007 if 123 is the last used digits

Yes, I've definitely experienced it too. It has to do with badly formed opf files. I believe the Sigil developers are aware of it and intend to implement more graceful handling, but it still happens to me occasionally. I always keep a copy of the epub I'm working on so that I can go back and rearrange things correctly. Also, you may have to remove "linear=no" in the opf file.
