Sigil 0.9.8 not updating toc.ncx

Hi,

I am using Sigil 0.9.8's table of contents editor to modify the TOC of an epub3. toc.xhtml gets updated but toc.ncx doesn't. Shouldn't toc.ncx be updated after doing the edits?

Thanks for your help.

- Mark

I forgot to mention that EpubCheck finds no errors in the modified epub.

For epub3 the TOC tools work on the nav. For epub2 they work on the toc.ncx.
So ... You should run the Tool to create/update it manually once before saving your completed epub3 to force the toc.ncx to be in sync with the edited toc information in the nav.

At some point, creating a toc.ncx for epub3 will be the role of an output plugin and not part of the standard epub3. Right now, we have decided to keep it but you must manually rebuild any toc.ncx from the nav if you make changes once before the end.

The original epub didn't have a nav so I back-door edited the epub to set the version to 2.0, ran ePub3-itizer, and went from there. Thanks for the help!
