Editing Metadata without Compromising Notes and Highlightes in iBooks

Hello,

Is there anyway to edit the metadata without removing the notes and highlights in iBooks?

Does iBooks actually store its notes and hilights inside the epub? If so, there's a good chance that unmanifested, non-spec-compliant files of any kind won't survive a Sigil save/reopen.

Without knowing how iBooks handles it's notes and hilights feature, it's going to be hard for us to see if there might be a workaround/solution.

I don't think it's possible with external tools. iBooks seems to identify books based on checksum. Any changes made to an epub file would change the checksum as well ergo, making it a different book.

I expect iTunes was an exception as it probably had direct access to iBooks' database.

Thanks. There's really nothing Sigil can do if iBooks uses checksums to connect books to its notes and highlights. An edited book will have a different checksum.
