But that means going into the editor changing to option to no longer diddle the metadata and then open the ePub and given the OP is a newbie, that's not going to happen either.
I haven't noticed the changes Sigil makes on opening an epub causing any changes in the opf line numbering. The changes are more related to changing the file locations in the manifest when Sigil forces it's subdirectory structure.

Even if it did, epubcheck would catch the error at it's new location. And yes, I am anal enough that I add the FlightCrew and epubcheck plugins as part of my base Sigil installs.

Oh my goodness gracious, as Don Rumsfeld used to say (and perhaps still does), is there an epubcheck plug-in? Do I find that on the Sigil download page, like Flight Crew?

Download links:

Sigil plugin
Calibre Editor plugin

Also check out the other Sigil plugins.

Maybe no change to the line number in the OPF, but it ould be a change to the location of the file in the ePub as that is going to be changed.

The thing is, we want to see what's what as it is now and not how it would be when Sigil changes the ePub structure.

Jon, Jon, Jon.... You stated rather clearly that the line number might change.

Also note the Sigil file browser seems to be quite content to show content.opf as the last file in the Book Browser window. No need to know where it is in the zipped epub. As for Sigil potentially changing the fragment identifier? Not unless it is detected as an error by Sigil's F7 Well-Formed Check Epub (rather unlikely IMHO) AND you click fix automatically.

It's all moot. If you open the epub in question in Sigil and run the EpubCheck plugin, any potential changes to the underlying code will be reflected in the new EpubCheck results.

TBH, I think that is beyond the OP at this time.

In that case, all the advice here is likely beyond them. Including your own.
